Static Translator

Program-Transformation.Org: The Program Transformation Wiki
A translator (typically a compiler) which performs its transformations before the program is run. Usually, the translator is unaware of any dynamic aspects of the program (e.g. where the program spends a lot of its time, how the hot traces change with time), although occasionally some profile information is used.

Example: gcc (Gnu Compiler Collection).

Contrast with DynamicTranslator.
