Abstract

Requirements are typically modelled in natural language, leading to inconsistencies, incompleteness and incorrectness due to inherent natural language ambiguities and lack of precise modelling rules. In previous work, we developed a technique and toolset to support extraction of requirements from English text and supporting semi-formal modelling and roundtrip refinement using Essential use cases, helping to mitigate some of these problems. In this paper we describe new work applying this human-centric approach to requirements engineering to the Malay language. We describe an extension of our original Essential Use Cases toolset to support requirements modelling in the Malay language essential interaction modelling, and results of a preliminary experiment to gauge our tool's effectiveness in supporting Malay natural language extraction and round-trip requirements refinement.
