UniversalIDE is an open source development environment studied to be compatible with any programming language thanks to its add-on based structure. Anyone who knows the .NET Framework can develop add-ons to support a programming language, defining syntax highlighting rules and interfacing the IDE with compilers or interpreters. It is written in Visual Basic .NET, so it requires the .NET Framework to run.
The program's GUI is multi-language (actually English and Italian are officially supported, but translating to another language is as easy as editing an XML file).
