I wrote

Contextual rules are in the form of condition-action where in the condition part, in addition to the features of the matching node, the properties of the matching context are specified.

Is it correct? or it is maybe:

Contextual rules are in the form of condition-action where in the condition part, the properties of the matching context in addition to the features of the matching node are specified.

or even:

Contextual rules are in the form of condition-action where in the condition part, the properties of the matching context are specified in addition to the features of the matching node.

It can be more clear if you write it as this:

Contextual rules are in the form of condition-action, where in the condition part, both the properties of the matching context and the features of the matching node are specified.

I feel no ambiguity reading it like this.

All of your sentences are grammatical and mean the same thing. You transposed them well.

I think the third option is the clearest.

The only thing I would suggest is adding commas or em dashes:

In your second option:

Contextual rules are in the form of condition-action where {, or —} in the condition part {, or —} the properties of the matching context [,] in addition to the features of the matching node [,] are specified.

In your third option:

Contextual rules are in the form of condition-action where {, or —} in the condition part {, or —} the properties of the matching context are specified in addition to the features of the matching node.
