    Model checking is a formal and exhaustive computer-aided verification method particularly suitable for I&C functions. A challenge with it is that both requirements and I&C functions must be first transformed into a formal presentation understood by the model checker software. In this paper, we suggest a combination of ontologies and natural language templates as a means to tackle this problem. On this basis, an intelligent text editor can be implemented to guide the user in writing well-formed requirements. Storing templates together with their formal counterparts makes it possible to automatically formalize the requirements for the model checker.
