Excel Software (www.excelsoftware.com) has updated MacTranslator, which extracts data for usage in MacA&D, to version 3.0. The upgrade has enhancements for Objective-C in Xcode, Xojo, RealBasic, Java, Delphi and C++.  Both tools increase capacity and add progress indicators to process large projects with thousands of code files, folders and namespaces.

MacTranslator supports dozens of programming languages and dialects.  Models and dictionary information can be generated from legacy source code, class frameworks, open source and example projects.  A single window provides a step-by-step process to quickly identify the code folders, language and options to document an unfamiliar project.

MacTranslator 3.0 costs US$495. It runs on Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
