The dictionary you linked has an unsupported format.

However googling "Turkish to English Stardict dictionary" returns several results.

Thank you Alberto, i can't tell how much you helped me! Thanks to penelope, i've finally managed to create an English-Turkish dictionary for the device. Doing what is told on http://www.albertopettarin.it/penelope.html, it worked great and i converted the stardict dictionary to dicthtml.
I should also say anyone who wants to use penelope, should do it in Linux rather than Windows.

Why do you say that? Aside from the hassle of the installation of Python etc., there should be no difference. Did you experience problems under Windows?

Yes, i did. After installing Python in Windows, i tried over and over but it returned with errors which i don't remember right now. I did everything what was explained; downloaded the penelope files, installed python, entered marisa path into penelope.py but it failed. I'm not a power user, may be i missed something but with the same files under Xubuntu it worked smoothly.

I see, probably your problems were related to Python/MARISA/etc. setup and/or the console encoding.

I definitely agree that using a Linux box goes around these issues easily, to the extend that I wrote in the official page:

Quote:
TECHNICAL NOTES The current version runs both under Python 2 or Python 3, and it has been tested under Linux (Debian, Fedora) and Windows (XP, 7). Unfortunately, since I do not have any financial support for the project, I cannot offer support for all the possibile values of the tuple (OS, Python version, console encoding). Therefore, only problems running Penelope in a Linux environment will receive full priority.

What do you mean by "size"?

Number of bytes of the ZIP container? I have a working dictionary of ~120 MB.
Number of words in the index? I have a working dictionary with >200K.

There are no official specifications, so it is hard to give a definitive answer.

I don't have my Kobo with me, but if I am not wrong, a query string is searched in all the dictionaries selective as "active" by the user (in the corresponding device settings).

Because Kobo dictionaries have a proper index, the size of the dictionary should not affect lookup times (too much). So please try it and see, and let us know how big a dictionary you can get working.

You are right. When I started making Japanese dictionaries (link), I was really surprised about the short processing time of the look up function. The first dictionary I made has 18+ Mb and consists of 64.103 html files. Gzipping and zipping on the pc took a lot of time. But you cannot feel any slowdown during look-up.

2) Is there fuzzy string match of levenstein distanse string match?

3) Can I use collations while searching?

1) a) Not sure. b) No. c) No.
2) No.
3) Not sure.
4) No, but you can add stemmed words to your index, and "duplicate" the definitions. Clearly, there might be collisions (multiple distinct words being stemmed to the same radix).

True, but I feel like the words file (the index) is loaded into the Kobo RAM, so there might be some size limit w.r.t. its size (hence, its number of entries).

On the other hand, since the definition files are "on disk", I guess they can be arbitrarily large, yet upper bounded by the Kobo internal SD size.

string matching

sorry for being annoying, but what actually happens when I search for a word which has no exact match in dictionary? For example I look for Lorens, but there is only Lorenz in dictionary. Will it tell me that there is no matching word, or it will show the closest match?

It will tell that no exact match has been found, and it will show you the closest match.

I do not know the "exact" definition of the distance considered --- my guess is that it is the distance in the trie traversal. (E.g., the previous or the next word with common prefix w.r.t. the query string)
