There is some information and a pointer to the gzipped source for
cobcy - a COBOL to C translator at

I have not tried it yet, so I can't tell how much it will translate.
It is written in C++ and has LEX and YACC code for the lexer and parser.
It is released under the GPL. I don't know if there is any development
going on.

And as far as I can see, it is *not* meant for translating COBOL into
maintainable C ;-)
