TECHI)OC is an inll)lemellted system demonstrating the flmsibility of gep, erating multilingual technical doeulnellts on the ha- sis of a lallguage-ill(lel)(mdellt knowledge base. Its application domain is user and maintenance instructions, which are pro- duced fl:om underlying plan structures tel)- resenting the activities, the p;u'ticipatlng ob- jects with their properties, l'ehttions, and so on. This paper gives a brief outline of the system architecture and discusses some re- cent developments in the project: the addi-. tion of actual event simulation in the KII, steps towards ;t document anthm'int,; tool, and a multilnodal user interface.
