Hi Qi,

Could you be a bit more specific? In what coordinate system are the fiducials defined? MRI-voxel space? MEG-dewar space? Something else?
There is a headcoordinates function in fieldtrip/private, which is computing a 4x4 affine transformation matrix for you (from which the rotation and translation can be determined). The high level fieldtrip functions you may want to look into are ft_electroderealign, or ft_volumerealign.
