[Editor Plugin] Traditional<->Simplified Chinese Convertor

Currently, the Chinese language is written with two different standardized character sets. The Chinese mainland and Singapore officially use the simplified set while other areas (such as Taiwan and Hong Kong) continue to largely use the traditional set. This plugin will allow users to convert between both formats.

Main Features
  • Convert eBooks written in traditional characters into simplified characters
  • Convert eBooks written in simplified characters into traditional characters
  • Convert regional words and idioms used in the source material to those words and idioms used in the destination material
  • Convert individual sections or the entire book
  • This is an editor plugin so users can make changes in case the conversion is not perfect

Testing Platforms
  • Windows 10 (64 bit) - Calibre version 2.60
  • Windows 7 (32 bit) - Calibre version 1.46
  • Linux Kubuntu 16.04 (64 bit) - Calibre 2.55
  • Amazon Paperwhite 3G

Note:
Special Notes:
  • Requires calibre v1.46 or higher
  • No testing has been done on OS X systems
  • Keep a copy of the original file. Round trip conversions (i.e. traditional->simplified->traditional) will probably not recover the original version. Also, since characters are being replaced, it's possible the font in your eBook reader may not have all the necessary glyphs

Version History:
  • Version 1.0.0 - 24 Jun 2016. Initial release
  • Version 1.1.0 - 27 Jun 2016. Improved speed
  • Version 1.2.0 - 29 Jun 2016. Correct conversion, turn on compression for the plugin zip file
