Language Conversions

Need a Custom Language Conversion?

Datatek has been providing automated programming language conversions for over 30 years. As the demand for conversion to other languages increased, Datatek wrote the parsers, optimizers, client-specific code modifiers, and code generators necessary to successfully move customers from legacy languages to the requested languages.

We have developed automated converters for many languages (supporting numerous dialects/vendor-specific functionality) including Assembler, C/C++, COBOL, DYL, Fortran, PL/I, JCL, and CLI. If the language(s) you need to convert don't appear in the list above, don’t hesitate to call! Because of the modular approach used in developing our automated converters, we typically can produce converters in relatively short time frames. For example, Datatek was able to develop a DYL to COBOL converter for a major American retailer within the time frame of the project and convert all of their DYL for almost half the cost of existing solutions from other providers!

Typically, the easiest way to obtain a customized solution is to call or email Datatek. Once contacted, a Datatek specialist will provide you with an overview of the options available.
