We show how to create a semantics-based, parameterized translator from model-based notations to SMV, using template semantics. Our translator takes as input a specification and a set of user-provided parameters that encode the specification's semantics; it produces an SMV model suitable for model checking. Using such a translator, we can model check a specification that has customized semantics. Our work also shows how to represent complex composition operators, such as rendezvous, in the SMV language, in which there is no matching language construct.
