Yomichan Import allows users of the Yomichan extension to import custom dictionary files. It currently supports the following formats:
Yomichan Import is being expanded to support other EPWING dictionaries based on user demand. This is a mostly non-technical (although laborious) process that requires writing regular expressions and creating font tables; volunteer contributions are welcome.

Notice: When converting EPWING dictionaries on Windows, it is important that the dictionary path you provide does not contain non-ASCII characters (including Japanese characters).

Attempts to convert dictionaries stored in paths containing illegal characters will cause the conversion process to fail.
