A library of software components exerts an important role in corporative level, supporting the documentation, specification, storage and recovery of components. This work considers the storage and the recovery of software components with the use of an interface in natural language. A method to generate a representation form is described, to be stored in the library, for the texts that describe the characteristics of the components that live in the library. The text of the consult generated by the user is also represented the same way in order to allow the comparison between the descriptions of the components of the library and the user question. Additionally the method allowed to determine the similarity between parts of the representations of the text of the characteristics with the text of the consult, returning as resulted the components that better take care of the user question in order decreasing of priority.
