I use esignal and I thought the indicators code is same as that of Multichart's. But when I copy & paste multichart indicator code into esignal efs, I keep getting errors. How can I covert .pla file to .efs file?

The 2 systems use different languages- so you can't copy and paste easylanguage code into esignal, which I believe is based on java .
You have 2 options:
1. Esignal has a EFS library with 300+ indicators. If you use esignal 10.6 - From the menu choose support ---- EFS Help center and library. That opens a web page. Choose EFS library and you now have access to all avaliable indicators and trading systems. IF you are programmer - you can make your own esignal based systems.
2. IF you are not a programmer - I suggest you choose MC6 and easylanguage. It is far easier to learn :-). There are a zillion indicators and trading systems available free. MC has a section in their discusion forum called "user contributed ...." which link to some of the free sites available.

Sam, I feel your "pain". truly, I suggest to develop the methodology from scratch in easylanguage for multicharts.
The code translations are lengthy and costly, and comparing lines of code at times could be frustrating.
