XLIFF (XML Localisation Interchange File Format) is an XML-based specification created to standardize the way localizable data is passed between tools during a localization process.
XLIFF is the core standard for data exchange in the translation localization industry. Based on XML, XLIFF files are structured bilingual files that contain both source and target language, as well as auxiliary data to make translation easier. Widely embraced across the industry by publishers, localization tool producers, and language service providers, XLIFF is the definitive standard to support.
The XLIFF format being open standards XML based standards, helps addresses the typical issues associated with localization in the following manner:
- Enables interoperability between tools and overall localization workflow.
- Eliminates the need of localization tools developers to support many formats.
- Eliminates the overhead of managing large number of proprietary intermediate formats.
