Why there is need for translator if we have an interpreter that can understand the java language and execute the machine instructions?
If Interpreters could understand bytecodes then why not install the interpreters that could convert the java lang code in to machine instructions?
If there are interpreters for other languages then why not for Java?
Please increase my knowledge.

This is to optimise excecution speed (ha! ha! ) and to reduce the size of the code that is interpreted.
