editor's review





This is the portable counterpart of Clownfish for Skype, a simple-to-use software application that enhances Skype's functionality by automatically translating messages when talking to foreign friends, without resorting to online resources or desktop assistants.

Portability benefits

Since there is no installer involved, you can drop the program files in any part of the hard disk and run the executable directly.

Another option is to save Clownfish to a USB flash disk or other mass storage device, in order to run it on any PC effortlessly, as long as it has Skype installed.

Worth mentioning is that the tool does not create new entries in the Windows registry or Start menu, so there are no traces left behind after its removal.

System tray accessibility

At startup, the program creates an icon in the system tray area. Double-clicking it turns Clownfish on and off. Opening the context menu, however, lists numerous options waiting to be explored.

Easily configure message settings

For example, you can select the online translation service between Google, Babylon, Bing, SysTran, Promt and Yandex (for each one you can select the incoming and outgoing language), enable a spellchecker by adding dictionaries, use a text-to-speech tool with multiple languages, as well as encrypt messages to send, and hide the original ones.

Clownfish's functionality does not end here. It can also send you notifications about a user's activity via email, broadcast a message to selected contacts, show user avatars, record voice calls, apply sound effects to voices (echoes, chorus), and more.

Modify app options

As far as program configuration is concerned, it is possible to switch to another UI language, ask the tool to automatically run at system startup, set the speech rate, change hotkeys, integrate Clownfish into Skype in new or edit message mode, specify email settings (SMTP), and so on.

Performance and conclusion

The tool does not put a strain on PC performance, since it runs on low CPU and memory. It worked smoothly during our evaluation, without causing Skype to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, Clownfish for Skype facilitates convenient features for improving the messaging service while talking to foreign friends, and it can be used by anyone, thanks to its intuitive options.
