TAPICC is an industry initiative supported by GALA, TAUS and LT-Innovate to tackle the challenge of translation industry application programming interfaces (APIs). Last week, GALA posted the TAPICC project charter for public review, encouraging clients, technologically-advanced LSPs, tools vendors as well as research and education players to join the discussion. On this project page you can review all relevant resources including the charter and the open source legal agreements before you decide to join.

Each volunteer who decides to join the GALA TAPICC Connect Group or contribute to the TAPICC Github Repository (yet to be set up) will be prompted to agree with the open source licensing conditions. GALA TAPICC plans in the future to submit stable technical and documentation deliverables of the TAPICC project for formal standardization to OASIS XLIFF OMOS TC, OASIS UBL TC or other suitable standardization bodies.

Unlike many standardization efforts driven by informal consortia or trade organizations, GALA took the legal aspect of things seriously and leads the work under clear open source conditions, which makes subsequent submissions to formal standardization bodies legally possible. It is the best way to protect community-driven spec or API from turning proprietary.
