Recommend Android reader working similar to Kindle SW regarding dictionary use

Here' s what I try to accomplish: I have a dictionary in e-book format - not an app - and even more! I have different dictionaries for different languages - you can set up Kindle easily to use separate dictionaries for different languages. I want to accomplish the same thing with an Android app - seamless dictionary integration with dictionaries in ebook format.

Which app can you recommend? Preferably free. I need offline dictionary support, strangely most apps only offer online look up.

It may not be exactly what you want, though I think it's close: I use Offline Dictionaries Pro, which works at least with Moon+ Reader Pro. OD supports a large number of different languages and allows you to look up the same word in different dictionaries.

Offline dictionary integration was my biggest (only?) disappointment with Android readers. It's great on the Kindle app, and it was superb on my old PDA with Mobireader.
I now have Moon+ working nicely with Colordict. I explained how I did it at this link.

Awesome, thank you! I've used ColorDict as well but was underwhelmed with the dictionaries you could download at Google Play. But now I can go and search for better ones myself! Now if I could only integrate an online dictionary too...
