I am looking for a german->spanish dictionary for kindle, but Amazon does not have any in the list of "default dictionaries".

From all the comments above, I believe that I can buy the dictionary from mobipocket, perhaps I have to edit some data with Calibre, and then I can do instant lookup in the dictionary when I am reading a german book.

żDid I understand correctly?
