Direct Links to Kobo Dictionaries

This thread is for direct links to Kobo dictonaries. It is also for non-Kobo dictionaries that work on the Kobo devices.

As far as I can determine, these dictionaries will work on the Touch, Glo and Mini with Post 2.1.4 firmware. There doesn't appear to be any differentiation of the dictionaries amongst the Kobo Devices.

The third post of this of this thread will contain generic installation instructions.

Kobo Release Dictionaries

The direct link for the dictionaries is : http://download.kobobooks.com/ereader/dictionaries followed by the dictionary zip file name.

These URLs are for the 2.1.5 Touch. I don't think that there are separate dictionaries for the Glo and Mini, at least the URL isn't versioned. My guess is that Kobo will make any dictionary updates without announcing it, and the Desktop will automatically sync the new version of the dictionary.
