MetaTrader 4 experts can only be used in MetaTrader itself.
Anyway this is not a big problem, MT4 experts could be rewritten by a programmer into Forex Tester format using Forex Tester API libraries (we have Delphi and C++ API for writing indicators and EAs). The conversion is not very difficult because our API is very similar to MQL.
API files can be found in <Forex Tester folder>\Examples folder
Please see more information about API here:
Forex Tester -> Help -> Strategies API

You can rewrite EAs by yourself or we can find a good programmer for you, just let us know.

If you need programmer’s help please send these experts so I can show them to the programmer and he can check if it is easy to convert them into Forex Tester format.
