    $\begingroup$ Mathematica core language is strictly more powerful than Matlab core language (note, I don't mean the specialized functionality), so in many or most cases you will find it hard to adequately translate in the Mathematica -> Matlab direction. The other direction might be simpler, for the core language at least. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 18, 2014 at 14:44

I have found the following page useful for understanding what the equivalent commands are:


If you're looking for a package that actually translates between mathematica and matlab, this previous question/answer is a good place to start:

Is it possible to export the equations from Mathematica to MATLAB?

And finally, if you want to call Matlab from Mathematica, there's MATLink, which you can find more info on here:
