Overview

The principal goal of the OASIS XLIFF Object Model and Other Serializations (XLIFF OMOS) TC is to define and further advance standards-based payload and metadata interoperability in the Globalization, Internationalization, Localization and Translation (GILT) industries. TC deliverables will describe and define standard serialization-independent interchange objects based on legacy XML standards that have been successfully used in the GILT industries. For example, the TC will define and maintain non-XML serializations of the XLIFF Object Model, including prominently a JSON serialization. TC members will define specific standard Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and abstract service architectures for various XLIFF serializations, and for other related standards (such as TMX, TBX, ITS, SRX, etc.). The TC plans to host and maintain the Translation Memory Exchange (TMX) v1.4b (1.4.2) specification, developing and maintaining any successor versions of the TMX standard including its serialization-independent Object Model and various serializations.
