I think the transliteration might be even more more useful if it is
displayed after the word itself (maybe in brackets) or as a popup like
the Strong's explanations (I didn't try that out myself yet, but it
sure sounds useful). Otherwise you need to switch back and forth all
the time, especially if you don't know the language well -- which is
rather troublesome because there is no keyboard shortcut.

Something which should be considered is that a transliteration may be
ambiguos. For example, several hundred characters have more than one
transliteration and the correct one depends on the context. It would
be helpful if sword could display all of them rather than just the one
it thinks is correct. (How does sword come up with the transliteration

Also, in Version J it seems the menu item that allos the activation of
the transliteration disappeared.
