Softpedia Editor's Review for Clownfish for Skype
Realtime Skype translator
Written by Sorin Cirneala on February 15th, 2013
Clownfish for Skype is a powerful tool for the users who frequently chat with persons from other countries. Since it is not always possible to find a common language, this app can help you instantly translate the messages.
You can use this tool for translating the outgoing messages so the recipient reads them in their native language. In order to translate your messages the program uses services from Google, Babylon, Bing and other online translation tools.
The program can also encrypt your messages or use a dictionary to spell check your messages before sending them. The dictionaries are not included in the standard installation but they are available for download on the developer's website.
Although it is not enabled by default, you can configure the application to translate the incoming messages to a certain language. This can come in handy when you are not sure about the meaning of a certain word or phrase.
Besides translating your messages Clownfish can also perform other tasks to enhance your Skype experience. It can notify you with email messages about the activity of a certain user and broadcast a message to all the persons from your contact list.
The application comes with a large number of message templates that you can send to your friends. If you want tips on starting a conversation or on congratulating someone for their birthday, this app includes some interesting suggestions.
In our tests, the translated messages were displayed almost instantly and the program required insignificant resources to run. It can easily be configured and provides support for more than fifty languages.
Overall, Clownfish for Skype is a must-have tool for anyone who needs a translator for their Skype conversations.
