Translation and localization

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.3 Part 1: Base Edition

OASIS DITA Technical Committee

DITA has features that facilitate preparing content for translation and working with multilingual content, including the xml:lang attribute, the dir attribute, and the translate attribute. In addition, the sort-as and index-sort-as elements provide support for sorting in languages in which the correct sorting of an element requires text that is different from the base content of the element.
