Thanks again to everybody for helpful comments.
problems with the same languages as me, so definitely a 2.14 bug.

So first question : as it's not implemented for now in the Glo, is it possible to add one, if yes, by what means ?

Second question : if the answer to the first question is no, as I set the main language of my Glo to "French" and as the Glo as a built-in German-English dictionnary, is it possible to have, at least, a german-to-english translation with French kept set as main language ?

I don't want to buy a german speaking book if I can't look for words I don't understand...
We are exactly in the same case : French ( Brittany ) wanting to read German books and needing German/French dictionary.

I'm now with Kobo 2.1.5 and still no such dictionary.

I must use the "Deutsch-English" from the Kobo, but I could buy one "Deutsch-Français" if possible ( but alas, not possible )

I find many free epub german popular books ( Science fiction, crime, western from 1890-1920 ) here :

But many other are available on Gutenberg :

For Vice-Versa ( and me, of course ) it's better to begin with children books like "Max und Moritz" ( Wilhelm Busch ) :

Thanks to share your sources with me but regarding children books, that's not an option for me at least. I was able still to read a German magazine about a DNA abnormality, though I missed a lot of words (still being able to understand the article as a whole) last year when I went in Köln. If I am to read in German, it must be something I really want to read whatever language it is written.

Still if it's possible to have at least a German-English dictionnary, that'll do the trick but I would have prefered a German-French dictionnary (as it's sold by FNAC to "replace" the old "FNAC book" ). As far as I know some people in Canada speak French and so could have use to a German-French / French-German dictionnary
