Title: Translation map simplification

Abstract: A method for translation map simplification may include determining a translation map based on a predetermined criterion in response to receiving input data. The method may also include determining if the translation map extends another map or a referenced map and determining if the translation map includes at least one map fragment. The referenced map is loaded in response to a determination that the translation map includes an extension of the referenced map. The map fragment is loaded in response to a determination that the translation map comprises the map fragment. A new map is compiled based on at least the translation map, the referenced map and the at least one map fragment, in response to the translation map not including a new map reference or a modification to the translation map. The input data is processed based on the new map to produce translated data specific to the new map.
