Project Description

When learning a new language, it's useful to read books in your target language. The trouble is, it's difficult and time consuming to look up the meanings of new words you encounter while trying to read. The purpose of this project is to create an ebook reader which allows you to highlight individual words and translate them quickly (similar to how duolingo stories lets you click on words to explain their meaning).

Goal for this Hackweek

Create a simple mock up (python gtk) which can read an epub, then add individual word translation. It would be better to add features to an existing opensource ebook reader, but that can happen in a later hackweek.


Looking for hackers with the skills:
