There isn't really a provision for collab-alternatives that parallel
name-alternatives. Please consider making a request for this feature:

It's possible to tag <alternatives> inside <collab> and use multiple
<textual-form> elements with the xml:lang attribute specified. Unfortunately
that's a hack solution and it won't allow you to include any of the structures
in <collab> that capture anything more than text formatting.

Dear all,

When we write a personal name in multiple languages, we should follow the
description shown in
Example1. of
with <name-alternatives>

But when we write a collaborative (group) author name in multiple languages,
what should we do?
Should we use "specific-use" attribute?

Can <name-alternatives> be changed to contain <collab> in it?

Thank you.

Best wishes,
Soichi Kubota
