Multilingual generation is the verbalization of a non-linguistic semantic representation in different human languages. The language of choice is usually a parameter to a multilingual generation system. A typical instance of multilingual generation is found in interlingual machine translation, when multiple target languages are involved. Other instances include report generation systems for multiple languages (such as Temsis-Gen) and grammar-based realizers (such as FUF/SURGE).
