At first I thought I would set the language of the primary dict to en, so that I can keep correct dict metadata (en->sk) for the English-Slovak dict. However, from some reason this did not work - the primary dict was always used... so I tried your example of setting the primary dict to fr and the secondary to fr->sk and that worked. I don't understand why I have to work it around in this way but not a big deal for me

Janvanmaar, please, where have you found Dutch-English and English-Slovak dictionaries for Kindle? I am looking for both of them for a few days. I have only found one Dutch-English dictionary on www.amazon.com, however, according to the reviews I decided not to buy it. It's cheap, but not worth even the small price it cost. Thank you
