Yves Savourel - RWS Group

Yves Savourel has been involved in internationalization and localization for more than a decade, first at International Language Engineering (ILE), then at Sykes Enterprises, and now at the RWS Group. While giving internationalization classes and consulting, his main focus has always been on developing tools and solutions for localization processes, often including SGML and XML aspects. Yves has been involved in the creation of various localization-related standards, such as OpenTag, the Translation Memory eXchange format (TMX), and the XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF). He is also working in other XML-related activities in the localization industry, and is the author of "XML Internationalization and Localization". Yves is a native of Brittany and lived in France, Africa and on islands of the Indian Ocean before settling in Boulder, Colorado.
