<trans-title-group> Translated Title Group

Container element for translated and transliterated titles.


This element may be repeated, for example, to provide translations in multiple languages, with the language indicated using the @xml:lang attribute.

Best Practice

Although, for backward compatibility reasons, the @xml:lang attribute may be placed on the elements inside this element, best practice is to use @xml:lang on this element, the container for the alternative language titles.
Historical Note
In some previous versions of this Tag Set, this element was not available, which meant that the titles and subtitles of multiple translations could not be grouped appropriately by language. This can now be done correctly by grouping each pair in an individual <trans-title-group>. This is one of the very few cases in which documents prior to the final NLM version must be updated for NISO JATS. For such documents, a <trans-title-group> wrapper element must be added.
