This paper describes a lnultilingual text generation system in the domain of CAD/CAM software in-- structions tbr Bulgarian, Czech and l:[ussian. Start- ing from a language-independent semantic represen- tation, the system drafts natural, continuous text as typically found in software inammls. The core modules for strategic and tactical gene,'ation are im- plemented using the KPML platform for linguistic resource development and generation. Prominent characteristics of the approach implemented a.re a treatment of multilinguality that makes maximal use of the cominonalities between languages while also accounting for their differences and a common repre- sentational strategy for both text planning and sen- tence generation.
