We have Facile, a Perl version of the compiler, written by Julien Ollivier and Fernando Siso-Nadal in Montreal, and sencillo, a Python version, written by Peter Swain and Alan Munoz Gonzalez in Edinburgh.

If you use sencillo, please cite F Siso-Nadal, JF Ollivier, and PS Swain, BMC Syst Biol 1:36 (2007).
A model in sencillo is specified as a text file. An example for a two-stage model of gene expression is
parameter a= 20
parameter b= 2.5
parameter d1= 5.0e-4
variable d0= d1/10.0
D -> M + D; v0= a*d1
M -> null ; d0
M -> M + A ; v1= b*d0
A -> null ; d1
for DNA D, mRNA M, and protein A.
Sencillo can convert this model into ordinary differential equations for numerical solution in either Matlab, Python and Julia, into a format for algebraic (but not yet numerical) manipulation by Mathematica, into SBML version 2 (if the SBML toolbox is available), and into XML for stochastic simulation by Stochkit.
Once downloaded, typing
python sencillo.py -h
provides further help and examples.
