Hi Karsten,

Within a Mathematica notebook, you can use functions such as CForm [1] 
to get a get a translation of the Mathematica expression to a C expression:

In[1]:=
f[x] = x^2;
D[f[x], x]
CForm[%]

Out[2]=
2 x

Out[3]//CForm=
2*x

You can also ask Mathematica to process a source or document file 
written, say in C or any other languages, that includes Mathematica 
code, with the Splice function. See [2] for an example in C.

Regards,
Jean-Marc
