The advent of model driven software engineering necessitates that there are frameworks and techniques that enable the translation of software expressed in one language to another language. Although the ability to do this is not new, compilers have long been addressing this need for programming languages; existing techniques are bespoke for the source and target language. The diverse nature of software applications demands that software engineers use (and adapt) a wide range of different languages to express software. In this paper we present a framework and approach for rapidly describing transformations between languages using transformation patterns.
