For exemple: assuming a kobo set in english, if I read an english book and select a word kobo shows me the definition, if I'm reading a spanish book it shows me directly the ES-EN translation and only if asked the spanish definition.
This might be seen a serious improvement by some, but not by others! Why, for instance, should one force the small English-German dictionary onto somebody reading a German book with English settings. Or what if neither the user language nor the language of the book is English? In those cases you don't have a translation dictionaries. Your improvement has a strong bias for English. I would rather like to select primary and secondary dictionaries on a book to book basis. Please give me more options, rather than other restrictions.
