    I have added Furigana mode. Let's try.

    Currently, all Kanji (including very easy ones) has Furigana, so it seems to be messy for me. If possible, I will update to add Furigana only on the difficult ones.

    Hi, I'm investigating the feasibility to add Furigana mode since some comments realize me many non-Japanese speaker use this addon to learn Japanese. I'm happy as a Japanese.

    The problem is I am native Japanese speaker then haven't learned Japanese language intentionaly. Therefore, I have no idea how to describe Furigana with Kanji in order to study Japanese.

    I could propose the following two formats (A) and (B). Which is better for learner? If you guys have any other idea, let me know. 

    I cannot choose multiple formats because multiple formats makes addon too fat. Just one format.

    Original sentence:

    ここまで戻って来るのは本当に大変だったろう。友よ、この報酬は君の努力のたまものだ。

    (A) Furigana after each Kanji set
    ここまで戻(もど)って来(く)るのは本当(ほんとう)に大変(たいへん)だったろう。
    友(とも)よ、この報酬(ほうしゅう)は君(きみ)の努力(どりょく)のたまものだ。

    (B) Parallel all Kanji and all Hiragana sentences
    ここまで戻って来るのは本当に大変だったろう。友よ、この報酬は君の努力のたまものだ。
    ここまでもどってくるのはほんとうにたいへんだったろう。ともよ、このほうしゅうはきみのどりょくのたまものだ。

    thanks for the great feedback.

    I'm gonna consider that idea. In my thought, it looks possible technically.

    Thanks for the impressive comment, Van.

    3 years ago, I started to play WoW in Colorado to reach Japanese community since there is no community in CO and even very small asian population. So I can imagine how fun to communicate/learn English via WoW. (Now I'm in WA and go back to Japan next year.)

    Also, I know that moderate number of English speakers are playing WoW in Japan. They often play with Japanese guild to match time zone. This addon must help them. 

    I'm very glad to hear your comment. This sort of feedback would be a big reason why I develop this addon although I'm already able to use/speak both English and Japanese enough to play.

    This addon translates lots of Quest message and Skill tool tips to Japanese. Also, it contains Japanese free font to display. 

    Some of messages are translated by volunteer human, some are machine translation. Thanks.
