Europass LabelsThe files below contain the text labels used for the Europass CV and ELP, in various formats:
- PO - The PO file format is used in the GNU “gettext” toolset, designed for producing and managing multilingual messages.
- XForms - The W3C XForms provide a standard set of visual controls, intending to replace today’s HTML form controls. They are designed to be used inside XHTML and other XML documents, like SVG.
- XLIFF – The OASIS XLIFF (XML Localisation Interchange File Format) proposes a single interchange file format that can be used for localisation and translation processes
Europass XML Schemas and XSLT ResourcesYou may find below

Europass JSON Schema
The Europass JSON Schema specification follows the IETF’s (Internet Engineering Task Force) JSON Schema specification draft. It defines the structure a JSON object that describes a Europass CV or Language Passport must adhere to. The Europass JSON Schema specification is in close correspondence to the Europass XML Schema and follows a similar versioning.
You can check the validity of JSON objects for the Europass CV or Language Passport using the Europass JSON validator
