Rikaikun--> Super useful Chrome Extension


#1

Rikaikun” is a Google Chrome extension that’s so useful to have when you need to read Japanese text on the internet. Just enable the extension and then hover your mouse over the word or sentence, and a little box will pop up in real time with the translation. It translates one word at a time, so there isn’t really any grammatical errors like with Google Translate or something else.

I prefer yomichan. It additionally can export searched words to anki.

There is also Rikaichan for Firefox, and – even better – Rikaisama, which has customizable Anki inport, a text-to-speech facility, and a Japanese-only mode that pulls definitions from Sanseido.
