Google Translate for Android
Learn a foreign language with Google Translate

Even when you go on vacation, the chances are that you will take your mobile with you. As well as providing you with access to the internet and a means of keeping in touch with people back home, it can also be a useful tool when you are in a foreign country. Thanks to Google Translate, you no longer have to carry around books of handy phrases to help you to converse in the native tongue – this app could be everything you need.

Available free of charge from Google Play, the app can be used to translate between dozens of languages, and this can be done in a number of ways. The first option is to simply type the word, phrase or sentence you would like to translate before selecting the relevant language. There is also a speech to text option which will enable you to dictate to your phone, but this is only available in 17 languages at the moment.

Not all translations involve conversations. You may encounter a sign that you do not understand. Rather than typing out the words in full, you can simply take a photograph of the sign, gesture over the words you want to translate and the rest will be taken care of for you. Whichever method you use to input the words you would like to be translated, you will be provided with a translation in next to no time.

If you are unsure of how to pronounce any of the words, you could simply flash your phone at the person you are trying to talk to, but you can also opt to have the translation read aloud. This is useful mid-conversation, but it can also be used at home as a learning tool. Ordinarily, an internet connection is needed to make translations, but your translation history is saved for offline access.

What's New
Minor bug fixes. Improved stability.
 

Verdict:

A must-have app for anyone venturing overseas – a great vacation and business tool

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
