Abstract

This article describes a national language interface for application generators. Information management system application development programs, such as IMSADF II, use an auditor routine to validate input data, perform application logic, and process application data. The auditor uses a symbol dictionary technique to decide which operations are to be performed on specified data. The application generator marketplace demands that flexibility for generators to be feasible in several languages other than English. The auditor may be used to perform all application programming, and the execution of certain logic often depends upon the knowledge of what the primary language is. For example, the user may only want to move a certain value or word if the language is Portuguese, since the value/ word has no meaning in English.
