A software tool has been developed for translating the notation of the Jackson system development (JSD) method into the formalism of communicating sequential processes (CSP). The paper illustrates the translation using a small example and then introduces a systematic approach to automating the translation. The automation involves a formalized version of the JSD notation, called FJSD, and the definition of a translation function. The applicability and limitations of this approach to automated translation are considered in the wider context of methods integration.
