This volume presents, along with its companion volume, the basis of the development work and applied research in machine translation and natural language processing carried out by language groups during the period 1988 to 1990. A presentation of the EUROTRA formal specifications is given. The first contribution is a presentation of the EUROTRA framework, the virtual machine underlying the EUROTRA prototype software ETS, giving an introduction to the notation in which current EUROTRA grammars are conceived and implemented. This is followed by a survey of the main features of the user language and by a broad overview of the EUROTRA software environment. The articles in volume II provide a formal notation within which most other articles in volume I and in a number of forthcoming volumes are couched.
