Multilingual generation systems aim to produce understandable texts in multiple languages from one knowledge representation. We adapted an existing prototype multilingual generator that presents simulated breast cancer Electronic Health Records (EHRs) in English to French and Swedish. The purpose of this work was to test how much effort it would require to modify this limited-domain, template-based English generator to enable it to generate in French and Swedish. We describe the adaptation to both languages, viewing the grammatical aspects involved and explaining the modifications performed. This work illustrates how the same underlying knowledge representation can be used to generate output texts in multiple languages with only minor linguistic modifications.
