Summary form only given. EDI is characterized by the possibility of sending/treating messages between information systems without any human intervention. A large number of translations are needed in order to enable the communication between an enterprise and its suppliers and clients. Therefore, translators and wrappers are needed to enable this task. We define a representative framework to map between different representations. We apply this framework for translating EDI messages. We examine the message translation process and show the problems and lack of existing solutions. We also identify the mapping between different messages. Finally, we suggest the use of semiautomatic transformation tool. This translator differs by being easy to use for managers and people with limited technical skills. It facilitates the task of definition of a large number of translations by using matching techniques between source and target message.
