I've started to learn french and the first problem I've faced with was the lack of a good dictionary.
The main problem I've faced with was that Kindle doesn't allow to choose PART of the word for the translation which is awful.
For example, I want to translate " l'immeuble ". The dictionary doesn't have an answer because of the apostrophe.
Any suggestions how to fix that?
I've found the same thread, but no solutions were proposed. ( http://www.mobileread.com/forums/arc.../t-166174.html ).
The only one solution of the problem I can think of is to make my own dictionary which will contain all the word starting with vowels in format L'+Word.
In this case, where's it possible to find big databases with dictionaries?

I no longer own the Kindle Keyboard, but I remember this being a real problem. IIRC, you can highlight the whole word, including any articles (in your example 'l'immeuble'), then hit the space bar. The word should then be copied to a dialogue box where you can manually remove the article and apostrophe, then select 'Dictionary' at the bottom (by scrolling all the way to the right). My memory is a little fuzzy, though, as I haven't had a KK for over six months now.
I was very relieved to find that this is not a problem on the Kindle Touch. For instance, you can select 'l'immeuble' or even words with pronouns or guillemets attached to them (like j'apercevais -> apercevoir and «rançonneuses» -> rançonneur), and they are found correctly in the dictionary.
