I think new Japanese dictionary has Shift_JIS filenames (used by MS Windows Japanese version). I am going to install Japanese Windows and investigate it more deeply...

I understand. So it requires more work to prepare one

My Kobo has firmware 2.2.0. Be sure the name contains known language abbrevations like dicthtml-ja-nl.zip or dicthtml-ja-es.zip

You can easily check it is installed:
- open any english book
- activate a dictionary by touching a word
- click on A/Z icon and choose "Translation dictionary"
Your new dictionary should be on the list.
