Overview

English to katakana typing assist tool

This extension is intended to assist the typing of Japanese katakana words for those who are more familiar with the spellings of their original English counterparts. ## Quick overview Examples: - If you type this → the extension will suggest this for you to choose - communication → コミュニケーション - maintenance → メンテナンス - California → カリフォルニア ## Background - For native English speakers (and sometimes non-native English speakers with intermediate English proficiency), katakana spellings of foreign words are often unintuitive and random. - Those who feel original English spelling to be easier and more intuitive face the need to type those words in katakana when they are on Japanese websites that do not recognize English words. - Given the word in English, this simple extension will suggest its Katakana word counterpart.- The extension will make the suggestion if the English word is included in its built-in table, which consists of about 800 English words that are often spelled in Katakana in Japanese.
