Excel Software is shipping MacTranslator 2.1 for Mac OS X and WinTranslator 3.2 for Windows to generate design documents from source code. Class properties introduced in Objective-C 2.0 are now captured. Static imports and generics are now supported for Java. Design information and source code files can be extracted from a REALbasic project.

New features have been added to assist a developer when translating source code from one programming language to another. Language translation projects are increasing common as developers migrate code between computers (Mac, Windows, Linux) and devices (computer, phone, iPad).

MacTranslator and WinTranslator extract design information from source code files into text files. Those files are imported into the MacA&D or WinA&D modeling tools to generate data, class or structure diagrams and data dictionary. Generate Data models from SQL, class models from C++, C#, Objective-C, PHP, Java, Delphi, Ada or REALbasic and structure charts from C, Pascal, Basic, PHP or Fortran source code.

MacTranslator and WinTranslator are highly scalable, fully automated tools that can turn millions of lines of source code into structured diagrams linked to the original code files. These tools support design capture and can automate parts of a translation project from one programming language to another.

The Excel Software web site has demonstration videos plus PDF downloads for:

* Software Design for PHP

* UML for C#

* UML for Objective-C

* UML for REALbasic

* Source Code Translation

WinTranslator 3.2 for XP, Vista or Windows 7 is $495 for a Single User License. MacTranslator 2.1 is a Universal Binary application that runs on all Mac OS X computers at $495 for a Single User License. These tools work with the WinA&D, MacA&D, QuickUML or QuickCRC modeling tools.
