JGloss is written by Michael Koch ( ). It owes many ideas to Jim Breen's work, particularly the WWWJDIC and XJDIC . The kanji parser is based on ideas from the WWWJDIC. The character encoding detection uses code from Yasuhiro Tonooka's kcc (Kanji Code Converter). The French localization is contributed by Alexandre Beraud. Heinrich Künsting helped with the LaTeX export template design and wrote the LaTeX-CJK list template. Some of the file chooser icons are taken from the KDE project.
