VPAT for Notepad++
According US law, you may need Voluntary Product Accessibility Template file for Notepad++ if you are in USA territory.
From Binary Translations page you could get the language you need.

If you can not find the plugin you need, just make your own.
User Defined Language files
For some reasons that some languages are not supported by Notepad++, User Language Define System can help you out in this case. This system allows user to define his own language : not only the syntax highlighting keywords definition, but also the syntax folding keywords definition, comment keywords definition and the operators definition.
You can define your language via User Language Define Dialog. However, the language you need may be already defined by someone-else in this User Defined Languages Collection.
This is one of the most asked question in the forums. Check here to have the solution.
