We present the Epsilon Generation Language (EGL), a model-to-text (M2T) transformation language that is a component in a model management tool chain. The distinctive features of EGL are described, in particular its novel design which inherits a number of language concepts and logical features from a base model navigation and modification language. The value of being able to use a M2T language as part of an extensible model management tool chain is outlined in a case study, and EGL is compared to other M2T languages.
