There are various additional aspects in the localization technology:

XML Localization Properties - As more and more data are stored in XML, it is important to have a standard way to describe how localization tools should deal with each type of document.

Segmentation - Simply put, the art of breaking paragraph into sentences. Like often, a bit of standardization here would do a great deal of good for better interoperability.

Metrics - An important aspect of scoping project is to be able to quantify volumes. Word counts and other statistics could seem easy to deal with, but they prove to be the source of countless hours of discussions, disagreements, and headache in general.

Web Services - With the growing capabilities of the Internet, using translation technologies and processes through the Web is not difficult. This area is bound to expand as the web technology matures.
