I wrote this sentence

We show that our proposed system provides robust and maintainable wrappers, which are not tailored to the HTML structure of the page. Therefore, they can be adapted to similar websites to gather and integrate information from various websites.

adapt, gather and even integrate needs different objects, some of which are similar but the whole meaning of each combination is different, then how can I combine them?

For example can I say:

Therefore, they can be adapted to gather and integrate information from various websites.

    I think you're worrying too much about repeating words. Sometimes you just have to repeat them, no matter what. – Catija Aug 22 '15 at 20:41

    I would simply omit the first website phrase altogether. Something like "Therefore they can be adapted to gather and integrate information from various websites." The idea that code is not unique to a particular job is sort of assumed in programming. – Jason Patterson Aug 23 '15 at 0:44
  • You can eliminate "to similar websites" and alter "from various websites" to "from almost any website". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Aug 24 '15 at 18:25

To avoid repetition (in your case preposition-adjective-"websites") you could modify one of the phrases (by adding a word, for instance) to break the pattern, so to speak:

Therefore, they can be adapted to similar websites to gather and integrate information from various other websites.

The other way to avoid repeating yourself is to replace the noun, of course. For instance, you can replace 'websites' with 'collection of pages' in the first phrase:

Therefore, they can be adapted to similar collections of pages to gather and integrate information from various websites.
