Excel Software Unveils WinTranslator and MacTranslator Demo Editions

4/6/2004 - Excel Software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Demo editions of its WinTranslator and MacTranslator reengineering tools. When used in conjunction with the WinA&D or MacA&D modeling tools, software developers can automatically generate live diagrams that represent the design of their source code.

WinTranslator for Windows and MacTranslator for Macintosh implement three types of reengineering:

The Product edition of WinTranslator can be used with the WinA&D, QuickUML or QuickCRC modeling tools. The WinTranslator Demo is only intended for use with a current Demo or Product edition of WinA&D. The same restriction and the approach described below also apply to the MacTranslator Demo running on Macintosh.

WinTranslator is a reengineering tool that extracts design information from source code files. It saves that information to text files that are imported into WinA&D. Unlike the WinTranslator product, the Demo edition encrypts these text files so that they are not human readable and can only be imported into WinA&D when running in a special Demo Mode. This approach allows evaluators to reengineer their own proprietary or classified projects and see the live results in WinA&D, but prevents saving or exporting the generated documents to disk.

Before importing files into WinA&D, the Developer must enable a special Demo Mode. The Demo Mode disables save, export and report generation features in WinA&D, but enables the import of encrypted files from the WinTranslator Demo. All other features are still available allowing the developer to view, navigate and explore the generated diagrams and dictionary information. The Demo edition introduces no file size or file count limitations, time restrictions or other constraints that would limit its use on large industrial-scale projects. After restarting WinA&D, the Demo Mode will no longer be enabled.

The WinTranslator and MacTranslator products are priced at $495 each for a Single User License or $50 for a Demo & Manual package. The Demo & Manual package includes a printed manual, PDF manual, step-by-step tutorial and free technical support.
