We introduce a development environment for the generation of taggers. Our proposal is based on the notion of finite automaton. In relation to previous approaches, our system separates the execution strategy from the implementation of the tagging interpreter, which is guided by the system itself. That facilitates the maintenance at the time that assures the robustness of the taggers so generated. Empirical tests prove the adequation of our approach to deal with languages whose morphology is non-trivial, in particular in relation with the sharing of structures and computations during tagging.

Key words: Tagging, User Interface, Maintenance.
