Setting active dictionary?
Hi dear Kobo users,
Here's a potentially stupid question: how do you change the active dictionary? I have my Kobo Glo's interface set in Dutch, and the Dutch dictionary (one of several that came with the device) is installed. However, when I select a word in a Dutch book, I only get a message that the word is not found in the English dictionary.
The same happens when I set my Kobo interface to French: the active dictionary is still the English one. I don't see any other option on the device to switch active dictionaries.
Thanks in advance!

From my experience, the dictionary's language comes from the language set in the metadata of the epub you're reading.
The language of your ereader is not important.

Can I ask what firmware you are using?
I had problems with the dictionaries, when I updated to the latest firmware 2.3.1 the problems disappeared. Before that (and now actually since I went back for 2.1.5) I use a trick that tshering thought me in the forum, here it is maybe it will work for you also.
