A computer language translator is a program that translates a set of code written in one programming language into a functional equivalent of the code in another programming language.

Translator – usually included within programming software – translators convert high-level code into machine code.

Interpreter translates code into machine code, instruction by instruction – the CPU executes each instruction before the interpreter moves on to translate the next instruction.
