How to change the dictionary in the Reader?

Hello,

when I mark a word in the calibre Viewer and right click the selected word I can choose 'Lookup in dictionary (CMD+L)' but where can I change this dictionary?
It is default dict.org, but I would rather like to translate the word and use some translating dictionaries.

Not possible?

Kindly regardings,

franc

It cannot be changed without editing the source code.

Thank you for that information very much.

Is it on the planned to Do list to do it in a future version, to adjust in settings the dictionaries?
I saw it in e.g. the android eBook Reader MoonReader+ where I can set the dictionaries by setting.
It is useful!
E.g.: I am in german language better than in english (or hindi/maharashtra ) and when I read an english book, it is useful for me to directly translate some unknown word directly to german, using the special dictionary.

Kindly Regardings,
frank

It's not a feature I am interested in personally, but patches are welcome.
