Converts Japanese katakana into rōmaji.

Image from store Katakana 2 Romaji
Description from store This extension converts all Japanese katakana in the web pages you visit into rōmaji - i.e. the Latin alphabet. Katakana is commonly used in Japanese to write English loan words. Enabling this extension will make these English words easy to decipher. Hovering your mouse pointer over the generated rōmaji will display the original katakana. The romanization is close to revised Hepburn, and can handle a wide range of extended katakana. This extension requires full access to all the web pages you visit. This is only used to perform the conversion. No data is transmitted - the conversion happens entirely in your browser. You can disable this extension at any time in the Extensions tab. In private browsing mode (i.e. "incognito"), it will be disabled by default.

  • (2021-05-20) Dika: I do wish this has hiragana and kanji feature
  • (2018-02-15) Elender Góis Gallas: should have hiraganaalso
