There is now a French and Russian translation available on the author website.

This is one of the few audio file converters which uses LAME. Most others use Blade encoder which isn't as good. This also has OGG support which is nice too.

It doesn't come with lame.exe. To use the lame mp3 encoder, you have to download the lame executable yourself and put it in the encoder directory.

There is something severely wrong with this software. I tried to launch it twice and each time I received cascading access violation messages that filled up my screen until I had to manually shut down

Same opinion as Hany Hanna.

It's doing the trick nicely for me! Good interface, easy, lots of options, and lame was included. No pop up overload like previous 2 commenters. And the price was right! :)

This is my favourite portable audio tool. Simple interface and fast. It didn't create any empty or config folder, this is what I like best for a portable program.

This is the only audio converter i found that is portable and it doesnt work. I tried to run it but nothing happens.

If you have problems with PowerEnc, it will be the best, if you contact the publisher. PowerEnc is working very fine on my machine :)

This is the best audio converter in the world! It is excellent the way it's set up - you can download more converters and add them to it. It's extremely fast, really easy to use, so many awesome options, batch list for multiple file processing, completely portable, and it's freeware!

Anyone have any comments on how this compares to BonkEnc?
