Since its first implementation in 1995, the shallow NLG system TG/2 has been used as a component in many NLG applications that range from very shal- low template systems to in-depth realization en- gines. TG/2 has continuously been refined, the Java brother implementation XtraGen has become avail- able, and the grammar development environment eGram today allows for designing grammars on a more abstract level. Besides a better understanding of the usability of shallow systems like TG/2 has emerged. Time has come to summarize the devel- opments and look forward to new borders.
