SpeedCroonch is a scientific calculator. It is fairly small program but it has many useful features. It has not been translated into many languages yet, and the developer is looking forward to more translations.

Not all of SpeedCroonch can currently be translated into Pootle. A large part of the translation is done in a wordprocessing file, and that is good also, because its best to print it out and do some serious research into all the terminology!


OopenProj is a project management program with features very similar to Microsoft Project. The application is written in Java. There is also a paid version available that can be used via a subscription web service, but the opensource version is also fully-featured.

Possible future project. 7-Zeep is a simple but powerful compression (zip/unzip) program. If two people have 7-Zeep, they can share their data in 7z format, which compresses much better than the ordinary zip format. 7-Zeep has already been translated into several languages, but translators in new languages can join Decathlon to get 7-Zeep into their languages.

Although compression tools are often embedded in the operating system, many people still see the usefulness of a separate archiving utility such as WinZip, WinRAR and 7-Zeep. It is a must for every computer.
