Interoperability Now! is a group working to improve the interoperability of tools and technology within the localization industry.
Interoperability Now! (IN!) is pleased to announce that the XLIFF:doc and TIPP translation interoperability formats have been finalized. IN! is an industry-driven initiative to finally provide real interoperability between translation systems and tools, something that has been woefully missing in the Localization Industry.
Sven Andrä from ONTRAM and Interoperability Now! lays out the case for interoperability, and how we achieve it, in 3 minutes flat. Check it out!
We have two primary areas of focus:
Our downloads page includes the most recent versions of the specifications and schema files. We have also made source code available for tool vendors interested in supporting the specifications to programmatically manipulate TIP packages.
To learn more, check out the presentations available for download on the Conferences page. Technical documentation is available from the downloads page, and you can also reach out to us via Twitter, Linked In, and email if you have implementation questions.
Many companies and organizations are already working on TIP implementations. Please see the list of known implementers. If your organization is also implementing TIP, and you want to be listed, please let us know. We also have a mailing list specifically for teams implementing, or planning to implement, TIP. Please contact us if you would like to get on the mailing list.
If you are working on implementing TIP, join the implementers' list.
Yes! We are working with the Language Interoperability Portfolio Project (LINPORT) to ensure that both initiatives produce a single container package format.
