I'm currently learning Mandarin and I wanted to stay motivated by watching whatever content that I wanted instead of the typical boring language tailored videos. So I created this extension to help me do that.

Starting from version 1.1.0, dual subtitles are available! You can have both the Chinese and English (auto-translated) captions running on the same video.

It enhances the transcript window, which is already available for most videos, by allowing quick definition look-ups and pinyin. It also in-lines Google's auto English translations. This combination gives me quick feedback to improve my listening and reading skills.

Both Simplified and Traditional Chinese are supported.

Once the extension is installed you'll need to 

1) Search for videos with with mandarin subs. You can do so buy adding 'mandarin subs' to your search term. Another way to do this is to do a search in Mandarin. If you haven't enabled your computer to input Mandarin characters, you can use Google Translate your search term to Chinese and then paste that in. 

2) Then filter for "Subtitles/CC"

3) Once you have the video you want to watch. Open the transcript in the menu by clicking the 3 dots (...) below the video. On transcript open, the Chinese will show and you can highlight over each word to get the definition.

4) If you want to see the English auto-translation, turn on subtitles by hitting the 'CC' button on the video.

That's it. I hope you enjoy it! If you like it or have suggestions on improvement, please leave a comment.

* Troubleshooting tips
** If you already had YouTube opened when you install the plugin you will need to refresh the tab in order for the plugin to take effect. 
** Don't forget to hit the CC button for english translations
