Even if this were possible to translate the syntax of the language with some automated script, that's still not very useful. There's no way something like that would know how to write proper Ruby and certainly not proper Ruby on Rails code.

There's a lot more to it than simply translating the language. It would be less work to rewrite the application than to start from translated source code. Ruby contains language features and idioms that are not present in PHP.

You are also making the common mistake of comparing a programming language with a frame work. PHP is a programming language Ruby is a programming language, however Ruby on Rails (or simply Rails as it's commonly known today) is a development framework that happens to be written in Ruby. Translating the language syntax is only a tiny fraction of the work involved in converting from PHP to Ruby on Rails.
