Abstract:

A model for generalized data translation is presented. Data translation is defined as the process whereby data stored in a form that can be processed on one computer the source file can be translated into a form target file which can be used by the same or different processing systems on a possibly different computer. Inputs to the Data Translator are the source data and two descriptive languages which drive the translation process. A description of the source and target data is presented to the data translator in a Stored Data Definition Language SDDL. This description includes both the logical data structure aspects of the data as well as the physical storage structure aspects. A Translation Definition Language TDL is used to define the source to target translation parameters. Modified author abstract
