The authors' system generates descriptions of museum objects that are tailored to the user. The texts it presents to adults, children, and experts differ in several ways, from the choice of words used to the complexity of sentence forms. The descriptions can also change, depending on what a user has already seen, and the system can generate texts in English, Greek, or Italian. The system thus uses personalized information objects in speaking the users' languages.
