Please help with converting dicts with Penelope ?

Hi

I downloaded couple stardict dictionaries and Penelope tool. However I am having a brain squeeze with penelope`s usage. I used thousands of command line tools but this one is giving me hard time. I do not understand why I need to convert from one language to another one when all I need to convert one format of dictionary to another format of dictionary.

I would appreciate if someone can give me the right command line for what I need.

I want to use norwegian dictionary in Kobo. So i have the dictionary and I want to convert to Kobo format. That is all I need.

thanks

These are the formats that you can convert From and To.
1. Bookeen Cybook Odyssey (R/W)
2. Kobo (R index only, W unencrypted/unobfuscated only)
3. StarDict (R/W)
4. XML (R/W)
5. CSV (R/W)
Refer here http://code.google.com/p/penelope-dictionary-converter/.
Once you have converted to kobo you can use the Kobo desktop app. I first got to learn about kobo while researching on your topic http://www.techyv.com/questions/kobo...-opening-files.

I actually went through both pages before posting here. I could not figure out the right combination command lines and was noit getting anywhere. That is why I was hoping that someone could provide me the right command line from star dict to kobo

thanks

Step-by-step procedure.
For example, you have Norvegian-English dictionary in Stardict format, intending to read Norvegian book and want to look up that dictionary on Kobo reader.
1. Go here and download file penelope_1_20.zip.
2. Install Python. I have Python 2.7 installed on Windows 7 64 bit.
3. Download file marisa.zip attached to this post. It containes two Windows executables I built from open source Marisa code. Penelope script invokes these executables. Place them anywhere; I put them to C:\tmp.
4. Unsip Penelope script and place it to folder of your choice. Open file penelope.py (if using Python 2.7)in any text editor, find variables MARISA_BUILD_PATH and MARISA_REVERSE_LOOKUP_PATH and set them to "c:/tmp/marisa-build.exe" and to "c:/tmp/marisa-reverse-lookup.exe" respectively. Save penelopa.py.
5. Copy your StarDict dictionary to the folder with Penelope script. Let the dictionary files be nor_en.dict, nor_en.idx, and nor_en.ifo.
6. Make this Penelope folder current and issue this command:
Code:
python penelope.py -p nor_en -f nor -t en --output-kobo
Here -f provides "from" language and -t "to" language.
7. Run this command. In case of success script creates Kobo dictionary dicthtml-nor-en.zip

I don't understand point 5. and 6.

Where I have to write this code :

python penelope.py -p nor_en -f nor -t en --output-kobo

And where I will find the exported dictionary?

5. You need to find out proper Stardict dictionary somewhere. This dictionary will serve as an input for conversion to Kobo format.
6. This is a command issued at command prompt.
On Windows 7, open Windows explorer, go to a folder level above the Penelope folder, press Shift and simultaneously right click on the Penelope folder icon, select option Open command window here from pull-down menu. This will open black command window with command prompt. Enter the recommended command there.
As far as I remember, exported dictionary will show up at the folder with Penelope script.

I think this is impossible!
I tried a lot of times without even a small success.
Can somebody convert this English-Bulgarian dict?

Anyone?

I have a KOBO and I would like to read Russian books but there is no dictionary russian-english..

I have been searching everywhere, but can't find anything. Is it possible with this program? Before I start struggling with it.

This has been discussed in the Kobo forum. To start with have a look at http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=196925 and http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=194986. They should have the conversion instructions. There is also some info somewhere about adding dictionaries for languages that Kobo do not already support. I'm not sure if it is those threads or a separate thread.
