QTranslate 5.7.0.3 released 12-MAY-2016

Fixed: Google Translate service doesn't work in China

Works good but not my favorite due to the fact that ya have to delete all the extra text where you enter translation. The audio pronunciation for Rumanian for example is pretty weak, but is a usable translator overall.

I can't get this software to work at all. Have reverted to PhonerLite, which has a clumsy interface but works OK. I like the neat gui for MicroSIP, but can't make outgoing calls at all, getting a 'connection timeout' message; and after answering an incoming call, can neither hear or be heard by caller.
Bizarre; use the same settings as for PhonerLite, and when MicroSIP is running, it registers with my VOIP provider (Sipgate) OK, but ... zilch!

Always wanted to get this client to work as a P2P-client with encrypted communication, but so far I havent had any success.

Version 10.10.4 is not stealth - existing "editbone.ini" and "editbone.out" files in the application folder are moved to AppData/EditBone on first start.

FileOptimizer v9.60 Updated

billon on 18 Feb 2017
  • 109MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF), and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL)
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe (for 32-bit OS) or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder

What's new?
  • Brand new FileOptimizer icon.
  • Added descriptions in INI file to make it easier and safer to be modified.
  • Migrated from smpdf to cpdf.
  • Fixed:
    • A bug that could show optimized sizes larger than original, when the plugin execution increased it. It was only cosmetic, and optimized size, never was larger:
    • Not properly passing PDF profile to Ghostcript.
  • Ghostrcript is automatically disabled when no downsampling is selected, because it is always downsampling images even if -dDownsampleColorImages=false -dDownsampleGrayImages=false -dDownsampleMonoImages=false are specified.
  • Make sure TempDirectory is created to avoid certain plugins crash.
  • Patched Guetzli and Mutool plugins to be compatible with Windows XP.
  • Switched to libwebp without WIC codes to keep Windows XP compatibility.
  • Updated:
    • UPX to 3.93;
    • libwebp to 0.6.0 RC3;
    • mozjpeg to 3.2;
    • Leanify to 0.4.3.180 daily binaries;
    • ImageMagick 7.0.4.7 with HDRI support;
    • pingo to 0.59;
    • pngquant to 2.8.1.
  • Some minor optimizations and code cleanup.

Can't start the app on WindowsXP - it misses BORLNDMM.DLL. Just plain adding of that .DLL doesn't resolve the issue...((
Any ideas for the solution?

Midas on 2015-12-27 03:05

@kozak: did you try registering that DLL with Windows?
(e.g., "regsvr32 BORLNDMM.DLL" at the command line)

Most images and files I post to portablefreeware go through this amazing compression tool. When compressing PDF files, I strongly recommend enabling the lossy DPI compression settings (usually around 150 or 200 is fine for most documents).
