There are many organizations, whose everyday life involves lots of tasks performed, or let us say executed, by lots of different people. Since nowadays processes have become much more complex, a big challenge for humans is to even understand what, when and how have to be done in order to reach their goals. Business process models are frequently used in organizations to make the process understandable to performers and to alleviate their work by connecting the process to organization's information system thus making processes human-executable. However, while developing a solution, there are usually only two extremes to choose from – either we use an all-in-one solution for describing process steps or we develop a domain-specific process modeling language from scratch. In this paper we propose the golden mean – a good base for domain-specific process modeling languages and appropriate tooling to be used in a big portion of related organizations and relatively easily integrated into their information systems. We define, what is meant to be “good” by binding the process language base with the natural language generator. We also demonstrate the approach on a case study of a process modeling language for the University of Latvia.
