translateR is the new service from German based R specialist eoda, which helps users to translate SPSS® Code to R automatically.
Today we presented translateR at the useR!2014 in L.A., the world’s most popular conference for the R statistical language.
translateR allows a fast and easy migration from SPSS® to R. The manual translation of complex SPSS® scripts, with thousands of lines of code, is a tedious and error-prone task, with incalculable costs. translateR reduces manual translation to a minimum and so the risks of unexpected high costs are minimized.
A user-friendly and intuitively solution
translateR is developed in cooperation with the University of Kassel and financially supported by the LOEWE-program of the state Hessen. translateR will be available as a cloud service and as a desktop application. The migration process of translateR happens transparent and comprehensible for the user.
For Data Scientists with a background in SPSS® translateR is also an easy way to start in with R. In addition, the User has the possibility to integrate typical SPSS® functions easily.
translateR opens the door to the “most powerful programming language for data analysis”
The migration of existing statistical scripts to R opens the door to almost unlimited opportunities for Ddata analysis, and visualization, Data Mining, Predictive Analytics and even more. With a world-wide community that continuously improves R, the quality, functionality, and actuality of R sets highest standards for data analysis, data mining and predictive analytics. After a successful start of translateR, it is planned to expand translateR to other statistical languages besides SPSS®.
