<bitext-relation>

The element bitext-relation identifies how the text on one text-bearing object relates to that on another by specifying a relationship, e.g., B is a direct copy of A, B and A descent from a commont parent, etc. See the section called “Token-Based Annotations and Alignments (<TAN-A-tok>)” for theoretical background.

In most cases, there will be need for only one of these elements. But multiple values may be helpful for cases where a bitext has a complex history, for example, a textual object that was created over time, and in different phases.

This element should not be used to describe any activities (e.g., translation, copying), reserved for <reuse-type>.

For examples see main.xml# keywords-bitext-relation
