QTranslate
A translation tool for the Windows desktop

QTranslate is a free tool which gives easy access to web translation services from the desktop. It currently supports Google Translate, Bing Translator, Promt, Babylon, SDL FreeTranslation.com, Yandex.Translate, youdao and Baidu.

Install and launch the program, and QTranslate adds an icon to your system tray. To translate some text for the first time, select it in any application and hit Ctrl twice. The main QTranslate window appears, displaying the source text, the translation (English > Russian by default) and the translation service used (Google).

If these defaults aren't what you need, then you're able to select a new destination language and service here. Click the headphones icon to hear the text (source or destination) in spoken form. Close the window when you're done.

Now the program is set up correctly, you're able to view the translated version of any text by pressing Ctrl+Q. This time the text appears in a less intrusive pop-up window. You can still change the destination language and translation service, though. Pressing the "b<>a" icon replaces the selected text with its translation, or you can select some or all of the translated text and copy it to the clipboard.

If using a hotkey is a problem, click the QTranslate system icon so that it turns green. Select some text now in any application and a tiny QTranslate icon appears at your mouse cursor. If you don't need a translation - you're selecting the text for some other reason - then ignore this, and it'll disappear in a few seconds. But if you click the icon, the translated text appears in a pop-up window.

While we've covered the main functions, there are also some thoughtful extras. An on-screen keyboard can be set to your preferred language, for instance, helping you type otherwise awkward characters. And a dictionary window uses more online services to check your chosen text online.

Verdict:

QTranslate is a well-designed and very configurable translation tool. Keep in mind that it relies 100% on web services, though - you can't use the program offline.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
