Stakeholders in model-based systems engineering projects often rely on heterogeneous modeling languages and tools. Efficient and seamless model-based engineering requires analyzing consistency, maintaining tracing information, and propagating changes of models of these languages even in different technological spaces. However, research on software language integration and inter-model consistency often only considers modeling languages and tools within the same technological space. We present a method for language composition across the technological spaces of the graphical modeling framework MagicDraw and the language workbench MontiCore. We realized language integration between these technological spaces by applying concepts of language aggregation to exchange essential model information and performing analysis on this information in an automated toolchain. The presented concepts can guide software language engineers and modeling tool developers on how to combine concepts of language composition to bridge technological spaces.
