This milestone underscores SALI’s commitment to make the field of law more cohesive, inclusive, and accessible, paving the way for a truly global standardization of legal data. In addition to the translations, SALI has added definitions to all 12,000 tags, permitting greater clarity on the concepts’ meanings and disambiguation. A uniform approach to legal data is essential to increase efficiency, reduce misunderstandings, and promote cross-border collaboration within the legal profession.  The translations and definitions are expected to be included in the next general release of the standard, planned for early 2024.  By incorporating these data elements, the SALI Alliance has taken a major step towards clearer communication for legal professionals around the world, who can now access, understand, and utilize the same set of standards in their native language…” [h/t ]
