iTranslate Voice for iPad
Need help speaking in a foreign language? iTranslate Voice could be just the answer.

About to head off to a foreign country and need help with the local lingo? Need to speak to someone in an unfamiliar language? You could, of course, load up with phrase books and attempt to muddle by, or even try to learn the basics before you go, but there's no substitute for having a proper translator smooth things over and make yourself understood.

Of course, we can't all afford to pay for someone's services, but iTranslate Voice attempts – with some success – to fill the gap and turn your iPhone or iPad into a bona-fide translation tool. There's no typing involved – it's all done with the power of your voice, and by passing your iOS device back and forth or using the AirTranslate feature if both of you happen to have iTranslate Voice installed on your corresponding mobiles, you can more than get by.

It's simple to use: fire up the app and grant access to your mic when prompted. Note the two language buttons at the bottom of the screen: set the left-hand to your native language, and right-hand one to the language you want your words to be translated to – over 40 are supported.

Now simply tap your language's button, wait and then speak clearly; or tap and hold if you'd prefer to type your words or phrase instead. After a short pause, you'll see your phrase in English, the translated phrase below it and an explanation of what it is. You'll then hear a voice speak your phrase in the native language for your audience to hear.

They can then reply in kind, tapping their language button and speaking in the same way. You can edit the phrase by hand if it's incorrect – tap the green pen and type the correct one. As each person speaks, the screen clears to show only what's just been said, but you can scroll down to review your past chat history.

Some languages work better than others, while the app is more accurate if it's able to use your Wi-Fi or mobile connection to pull translations from over the net.

What's new in version 2?
+ Redesigned and reimagined for iOS 7
+ Universal binary for iPhone and iPad
+ Support for iOS 7 offline voices, which helps provide much quicker translation results
+ AirTranslate now works even better with iOS 7's new P2P technology
+ Get suggestions while editing
+ Improved voice recognition with greater accuracy

Verdict:

A great idea, and executed really well. The new version in particular looks a lot more polished, and while no substitute for the services of a professional translator, could prove to be a lifesaver.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
