Web services use Internet technologies to allow computer-based systems to communicate and transfer data in a way that provides a more seamless automated workflow. At OASIS work is being done to create a standard way for Web services to be used within the translation and localisation industry. The purpose of this article is to inform you about this work, what Web services are, and to outline a real-life case study showing how this technology is being put to use now. The article will deal in detail with the specification proposed by the OASIS technical committee for Translation Web Services. It will also describe use cases where this specification can be put into practise such as the project implemented by the Localisation Research Centre as part of the IGNITE project.
