1. Get a dictionary from www.freelang.net
and install it somewhere. This will give you one or two files with extension .wb.
2. Get the Tool freelang2txt: http://3ppc.net/Users/SiD/freelang2txt.zip
3. Unpack it to the same directory as the dictionaries, then run
freelang2txt English-German.wb English-German.txt
(you need to change the names depending on the used dictionary)
4. Get the PocketBook converter: http://pocketbook.com.ua/file/DictionaryConverter.zip
5. Unpack it with all subdirs to the same directory as the dictionaries
converter.exe English_German.txt eng
The "eng" subdir contains instructions on how to handle things like singular/plural, and the keyboard layout for the PocketBook keyboard. You will need to edit it if the source language is different from English.
Hi, I'm new at this pocketbook forum, I have a 360 from a few days and tried to follow this instructions for a spanish dictionary from Freelang, but when I try the freelang2txt, the window apears for a second and then vanishes, and I can't make the transformation.
What I made wrong?
Thank you for your help.
