Abstract

LDAP RFC2596 describes the interpretation of language codes for attribute values. Machine Translation can be used to extract an LDAP database as an LDIF file which can then be parsed of attributes and provide LDIF entries with language codes. For example, an LDIF is shown below before machine translation. objectclass: top objectclass: organization O: Glassworks Incorporated description: glass manufacturing

Automated LDAP Storing of Language Coded Attribute Values

    LDAP RFC2596 describes the interpretation of language
 codes for attribute values.  Machine Translation can be
 used to extract an LDAP database as an LDIF file which
 can then be parsed of attributes and provide LDIF entries
 with language codes.  For example, an LDIF is shown below
 before machine translation.
  objectclass: top
  objectclass: organization
  O: Glassworks Incorporated
  description: glass manufacturing

   And then processed by Machine Translation for language
coded German attributes.
  objectclass: top
  objectclass: organization
  O: Glassworks Incorporated
  description: glass manufacturing
  description;lang-de: Vitrez fabrication

   The new LDIF can be used to update the LDAP database and
provide additional language code attributes in an automated fashion.
