Re: [xml-dev] Percentage of XML documents exclusively processed bymachines?

Dear Roger, dear list members,

As regards your wild guess, I am not sure. There must be hundreds of thousands of XML-based (Trados) TTX files translated each day by thousands of different translators. In addition, there are plenty of other translation, localization and terminology tools using XML or XML-based files requiring manual human processing.

Just an idea.

With best regards,
Nico van de Water.

Hi Folks,

What percentage of XML documents are exclusively processed by machines?

Allow me to explain what I mean by "exclusively processed by machines."

First, consider the opposite - XML documents that are processed by humans. An XML document is received and then displayed directly to a human. Or the XML document is received, transformed to a visually friendly form such as HTML, and then the visually friendly form is displayed to a human.

XML documents that are exclusively processed by machines don't have a human in the loop. An XML document is received and then processed by a machine. No human ever sees the XML.

Are there any statistics on the  percentage of XML documents that are exclusively processed by machines?

I'll take a wild guess and say that 99% of all XML documents are exclusively processed by machines. Is that a reasonable estimate?
