A description is given of the Integrated Chameleon Architecture, (ICA), a special software environment that automatically generates translation code, eliminating the error-prone process of writing and updating code, and enforces completeness in the high-level translator specification and correctness in the translated data. Two sets of translaters developed using ICA are examined. The first set translates ICA's user manual from the La Tex markup language to Troff markup macros. The second translates documents encoded in schemes like Refer (from the roff macro family) and Bibtex (La Tex's bibliographic package) into an encoding conventional imposed by a central bibliographic database for human-machine interaction.<>
