Schema translation is the process of transforming schemas in heterogeneous data models into a single target data model. Today there exist various data models to save useful data. The need of schema translation rises due to the existence of wide range of prominent, heterogeneous database applications. Due to the increasing requirement of interoperability of autonomous databases, multi database system which consists of homogenous or heterogeneous databases is required to work in a cooperative environment. In heterogeneous multi database system, the translation of one data model to another data model is critical. In this paper, the authors present a data model translation between heterogeneous models. Their approach translates the schema and data of one model to the target schema and data.
