Generation of Electronic Product Information (GePI)

GePI is a computer system that generates the product information in n-languages from text tables. The core work is completed: programs, architecture, XML template and DTD. Most of the work left is routinary: fill the tables and refine the lower children in the XML tree.

There are four tables, formatted as simple key-value pairs, that correspond to the four classes of segments in product information. Neutral segments, such as ATC code or address, are particularly useful as they are kept in one place; for updates, just change the single copy, run Ged and all the 26 lingustic versions of the product information are generated in an instant.
