Pons Dictionary

Is there a way to use the dictionary from an Android device? I have the PONS German-English Premium dictionary on my android phone and would appreciate a lot to have such a dictionary on the KG.
File format of the dictionary is "1A0B.prc".

thanks a lot.

There has been some discussion on making user dictionaries in the Kobo Developers subforum. Unfortunately it's very much a do it your self project.

A prc file is a container, so you would have to get the dictionary out of it, and into a format that the tools for making a kobo dictionary expect.

And yes, while calibre can convert between many formts, it tends to break when converting files with many internal links, like dictionaries.
