JGloss is an application for reading, adding, and translation annotations to words in a Japanese text document. This can be done manually and automatically.
When a text document is first opened, words will be looked up in dictionary files and the first reading and translation (if any) is used to annotate the word.
The user can then edit the annotations: choose among the readings and translations found in the dictionaries, enter own readings and translations, remove annotations and add new annotations.
The document can be exported as plain text with annotations, HTML (with support for the Ruby Annotation XHTML specification) or LaTeX.
