iTranslate for Windows RT/8
Need help with a foreign word or phrase? iTranslate could be just the answer.

Struggling to translate a word or phrase into a foreign tongue? 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 attempts – with some success – to fill the gap and turn your Windows RT tablet or Windows 8 PC into a basic translation tool. It’s not as sophisticated as the iOS version – there’s no support for speaking into the microphone with this initial release – but at a push, if you’re doing this on a tablet you could embark on a slow, but accurate conversation between you and your chat partner by handing the mobile back and forth.

It's simple to use: fire up the app. 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.

Next, type your word or phrase, then wait for iTranslate to deliver a written translation back at you in your chosen language. Tap the mic button and you can hear it too, helping you pronounce your words correctly. Enter a single word with more than one meaning, and iTranslate will provide different translations based on those different uses.

Some languages work better than others, and you’ll need an internet connection in order to allow the app to translate via the cloud, which could be a problem if you plan to use it on the road.

Other features include being able to share your translations via email, Facebook and Twitter, plus you can create favourites and revisit old translations via the app’s History section.

The app is also ad-supported – to remove these, plus get translate unlimited phrases, an in-app purchase is available for $4.99.

Verdict:

It’s overshadowed by the more fully featured iOS release, but iTranslate for Windows gets off to a good start and could prove itself when you’re struggling for the right foreign phrase to use.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
