The increasing variety of different devices with different screen size, interaction paradigms and application areas raises the need for new technologies of cross-device development. Automatic transformation of user interfaces between devices of different screen size and interaction devices can increase the speed of multi-device software development and decrease the costs for testing and maintenance while providing inter- and intra-device consistency. Therefore transformation strategies have to be developed and evaluated. In this article we introduce a classification scheme for such transformation strategies. An example transformation strategy for menus and toolbars supporting the migration between desktop PCs an palm-sized devices has been developed and evaluated.
