Really useful add-on! It is too tedious to look up each word in the dictionary. A powerful learning tool when combined with Anki.
For those of you having problems with this add-on on Firefox 51.0: install the 3.00 version, not the 2.x
I love RIkaichan and it has been a huuuge help to learn Japanese while reading stuff online. Thank you so much !
BUUUUT it doesn't work anymore on FIrefox 51.0...so I'm just putting the 1 star rating to alert the dev team !
UPDATE: The latest Rikaichan beta (3.00rc2) version works well so far, I update my rating to 5 stars :)
Thank you Rikaichan team for the really useful tool you´ve developed. Unfortunately, the add on does not work with the newest version of Firefox (51.0). I´ve had to reinstall the older version to make Rikaichan work again, but it would be great if it worked with the newest version too.
been using this for over 8 years.
Ever since a few weeks ago it stopped working on Windows 10. Maybe I need to donate to get it to work.
Giving 4 stars. It works perfectly, but there's a glitch (It says that the add-on is corruypt) that prevents me from installing it on my Firefox. I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 as my OS.
This extension does a really complete job at translating japanese! Even katakana words can be translated which helps alot since many katakana words are japanese-made english which I normally cannot understand. And its really useful to activate and apply to certain keywords that I don't understand on japanese news websites.
A possible improvement or addition would be to able to translate entire paragraphs or sentences using this functionality you already have for words - that would help alot in understand difficult text of japanese.
Very good, I use Rikaichan in daily life and it's very usefull, thank's!
Thank you very much for such an AWESOME & USEFUL addon.
Looks like toggle shortcuts doesn't work on Mac. Using the latest version 2.09.1. Tried different settings / different combination, but with the same result - it just won't toggle rikaichan.
can I get an option to remember "K-button state"? even after browser restart
I found no way to contact you on polarcloud, so I'm writing here. Since 2.08, Rikaichan's text boxes are next to unusable: instead of always appearing a small constant distance away from the character selected (2.07: http://prntscr.com/6ta65k) either fly away to a random place (2.09: http://prntscr.com/6t9zto) or cover the text (http://prntscr.com/6t9zfa, I'm mousing over a word that's in the middle of where the text box appeared).
I want to see the romaji of each word rather than its meaning, so I can learn what to type with the keyboard for write in japanese... What must I do for this?
Thanks so much...
So powerful, complete and useful for Japanese learning!
Great pop-up dictionary, no hassles
Plus rapide et pratique que les dictonnaires en ligne: quand il est activé et que le pointeur de souris se trouve sur un mot japonais, l'extension affichera dans une bulle les traductions probables.
L'extension «Perapera» fait à peut près la même chose.
Rikaichan is excellent. If you use the flash-card program Anki, check out the Rikaisama extension too, to create notes quickly. All I'm missing is a digital currency address to donate to - I can't use PayPal.
very very useful addon
Works fantastic, I especially like the "sticky" feature so it holds in place and I can copy/paste words from it. But are there explanations of the abbreviations anywhere? I can't figure out what "ctr" means for 巻 for example.
I wish you could have the pop-ups be a scrolling box, because sometimes with my font size the pop-up gets longer than the page and I can't see it all.
This addon is amazing. It really helps for reading websites in japanese for us that still don't know their kanji well enough. Thanks a lot for working on it!
With 斯his add-on you can 平ven 孟tart reading Japanese without having studied any Japanese before, since it includes meanings for particles and will show you the 緊ense/form of a word when you hover over it! You get used to it very fast too, although some katakana 字ords it doesn't recognize (you can probably guess at those yourself though). I only wish it had options for changing the font size for the popup menus since it can be a 小ittle too small for me.It also sometimes works in conjunction with other add-ons, ex. if you use "Characterizer", which replaces words or parts of words with other words (in this case, replacing English words with kanji), then you can hover over the inserted kanji with Rikaichan and see their meanings.
A fantastic addon. I use it daily and have done so for months.
It has really improved my Japanese and more importantly my confidence in the language.
Отличный плагид для браузера
