This chapter is dedicated to discussing the engineering aspects involved in the integration of modeling languages, as an essential part of the globalization process. It covers the foundations of language integration, the definition of the relationships between the languages to be integrated, and the various dimensions of language and tool integration. Language variants, evolution, refactoring and retirement are also discussed, as key issues involved in the globalization of modeling languages.
