Suggestion for importing Japanese books (EPUB format)

Hello there,
I noticed some issues when importing Japanese EPUBs with furigana on top of words into LingQ. This comes from the fact that the EPUB format uses “ruby” to add the characters (generally readings) on top of words.
Here is an example:
This would be imported as 滅め茶ちや苦く茶ちや into LingQ, whereas it should be 滅茶苦茶 (without the readings). A simple fix is to add a REGEX filter to remove what is in-between “” and “”, e.g. “.*?”. I believe this could easily be added by default into LingQ’s importer. Just a suggestion.


Thanks, we’ll see if there is anything that can be done.
