Up-Translation and Up-Transformation: Tasks, Challenges, and Solutions
Chair: Evan Owens, Cenveo

Increasing the granularity and/or specificity of markup is an important task in many content
and information workflows. Markup transformations might involve tasks such as high-level structuring,
detailed component structuring, or enhancing information by matching or linking to external
vocabularies or data. Enhancing markup presents secondary challenges including lack of structure
of the inputs or inconsistency of input data down to the level of spelling, punctuation, and
vocabulary. Source data for up-translation may be XML, word processing documents, plain text,
scanned & OCRed text, or databases; transformation goals may be content suitable for page
makeup, search, or repurposing, in XML, JSON, or any other markup language.

The range of approaches to up-transformation is as varied as the variety of specifics of the
input and required outputs. Solutions may combine automated processing with human review or
could be 100% software implementations. With the potential for requirements to evolve over
time, tools may have to be actively maintained and enhanced. This is the place to discuss
goals, challenges, solutions, and workflows for significant XML enhancements, including approaches,
tools, and techniques that may potentially be used for a variety of other tasks.
