A problem of automatic source code fragments translation from one imperative language to another is considered in this article. Formal specifications of syntax and semantics are used to solve it. Yacc grammars are used for syntax description and the special language is introduced to describe semantics of language constructions. The main result concerned in this article is an approach to find matching textual representations of program fragments semantics using language syntax and semantic specifications. It is supposed that involved languages and their semantics are close enough.

Key Words
semantics specification, syntax specification, formal language translation
