This paper is devoted to the system modelling and information transfer to information system. The BiLingva (Bilingual Language) is a domain specific modelling language used to model event oriented information systems. Unlike many other modelling languages BiLingva allows unconstrained use of state diagram concepts and activities diagram concepts in the same diagram. This approach is most appropriate in this specific domain.

In the second part of the paper authors analyze a new approach for transferring information system model in BiLingva language to the information system. It is proposed to make user friendly and model consistent configurable software that takes over information from BiLingva model.

In the end this paper provides a few examples of running systems developed with this technology thus confirming usefulness of this approach.
