Other dictionaries? in other languages?

Hi folks,

On of the features I like very much is the instant dictionary. English isn't my native language and, strongly depending on author, I want to use the dictionary when I stumble over a unfamiliar word.

I would like to know if this is only possible with the 2 English dictionaries.
Or can I install Spanish or French dictionaries as well?

I would be very grateful for step by step instructions!

Thanks,
Len.

Great! Thanks for your fast reply.
So now I want to buy a few dictionaries, French, German, Portugese (not Brazilian) and Spanish. I am not really sure what exactly to look for or what properties these books should have.
Which do you use? And where did you buy them?

Thanks again....
Len.

In the US Kindle Store, see: Kindle Default Dictionaries

It's a little disappointing that more dictionaries are not available after all this time. Most of these have been available for a couple of years.
