ULI process


This document describes the Unicode Localization Interoperability Technical Committee, and its process for specification definition, interchange format and examples. The process is designed to be light-weight: in particular, the meetings are frequent, short, and informal. Most of the work is by email or phone, with a database recording requested changes.

For more information on the formal procedures for the Unicode CLDR Technical Committee, see the Technical Committee Procedures for the Unicode Consortium.


Language Segmentation

The UAX 29 Unicode Text Segmentation defines the guidelines for determining default segmentation boundaries between certain significant text elements. The interchange specification SRX (Segmentation Rule eXchange) is used as the actual exchange format for system-to-system communication of the behavior of text segmentation associated with any content. An actual example of the SRX at language level is available as part of the CLDR project.

See CLDR Process for more information on the vetting and submission of language segmentation input.

Translation Memory

The ability to interchange memories as static content within a translation request life cycle is defined by TMX (Translation Memory eXchange). The scope of this work is under discussion.

Public Feedback

The public can supply formal feedback into ULI  by filing a Bug Report or Feature Request. There is also a public forum for questions at ULI Mailing List (details on archives are found there).

Anyone can also asked to be added to a list that will receive notification of new bugs, so they can track issues if they want. Anyone can also to reply to any bug report to add comments or questions.

There is also a members-only ULI mailing list for members of the ULI Technical Committee.
