A program that translates the instructions of a programming language such as Basic or Java into machine-language instructions that can be executed by a microprocessor, and immediately executes each instruction after it has been translated. Interpreted programs always run more slowly than compiled, since the translation occurs at run time. However, a significantly higher level of hardware independence in programming is possible with interpreted code than with compiled code.
