Notepad++ is an advanced text editor for Windows, with HTML/XML tag highlights, and an enormously good search and replace feature. Great for correcting mass spelling errors, formatting issues, highlighting a bunch of tags, etc... In some ways I find it better than MS office.
It's used for programming, and NOT WYSIWYG!
Very handy for trimming down unnecessary data from ebooks.
It's probably the best tool to create or clean up Epub files (or other html based ebooks).

Download it from the : Notepad++ Home Page

BookBrowser is easy-to-use tool to generate a web-based epub book browser. All you need to do is download it into the folder with your ebooks, and run it. It can be useful for quickly looking through your books without a big program like calibre, or transferring books to another device.

Why would you need fixed layout ePub 3 for a bunch of images when you can do it in ePub 2 for greater compatibility?

In Japan, EPUB 3 is standard. There are few places to accept EPUB 2. When selling in EPUB 2, the review evaluation goes down and returns are increased.

Jutoh is a powerful and very complete software for digital book. Its development is very active and its documentation is very complete.
It not free, but it's not expensive for what it's worth (and less expensive than many other proprietary publishers)

It a Writer WYSIWYG (like LibreOffice), not a epub editor (like Sigil).

There's a newer version; the home page should always have the latest version.

Foliate Versione 2.11

https://johnfactotum.github.io/foliate/

https://github.com/johnfactotum/foliate/releases

It is nice and works well, two only issues:
  • I'm not able to open azw3 files with it (converted from calibre or directly downloaded from Amazon)
  • I am Italian and I read an Italian book but when I search a word with the dictionary it opens the Italian-English Wiktionary, not the correct Italian Wictionary and I am not able to convicne Foliate to use it.

Thorium Reader

I just stumbled upon this and it's almost perfect for me. (no theme colors customization)

Thorium Reader

https://www.edrlab.org/software/thorium-reader/
Windows, MaxOS, Linux

Thorium Reader is the EPUB reader of choice for Windows 10, MacOS and Linux.
This EDRLab application is in constant development and aims at becoming a reference for accessing EPUB 3 publications in reflow or fixed layout format, audiobooks and visual narratives, LCP protected or not.
It is localized in a large set of languages, each version offering new languages.
Huge efforts are also made to get Thorium Reader highly accessible for visually impaired and dyslexic people.
This application is free, with no ads and no leaks of private data.
This is the perfect tools for heavy readers, library patrons and students.

They also got open source toolkits in case any devs are interested. (*cough* calibre-web? *cough*)

ePub translator

Hello, I made a quick ePub translator script in Python.

It uses Google Translate API (requires credentials in PATH).

Link is here: https://github.com/Poyeyo/epub-translate

It can translate all text, or it can output both original and translation as parallel texts.

As described in the readme, the resulting file needs to be fixed in Calibre e-book editor or other tool. But the fixes are quick and take almost no time.

Attached is one resulting file with parallel texts.

Very nice. But one thing. You have not specified what versions of Python this runs with.

Well, It runs on Python 3.

I think the latest version creates ePub files that require no manual fixing (hopefully).
