Adding new dictionaries to kobo.

1. Adding a new language to Kobo.
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...5&postcount=44

Add an "ExtraLocales=(iso 639-1 language code)" in the file eReader.conf



You have a new language on the list.



2. Copy the dictionary files to Kobo.
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=196931
KOBO requires a special file naming for dictionaries.
Example: dicthtml-en-pl.zip - from english to polish.
Rename files and copy to "\.kobo\dict\".



3. Update database file.
I use Sqlite Manager plugin for Mozilla Firefox.
Open \.kobo\KoboReader.sqlite file.
(Database->Connect database -> indicate file KoboReader.sqlite).
In the left window find Tables -> Dictionary.



In the right window click "Add".



Sufix- file name without "dicthtml".
Name- name on the list of dictionaries.
Installed-true.
Size- file size in BYTES.
Issynced- true.
Click OK 2 times.







Close the database file (Database->Close Database).
Congratulations, you have a new dictionary.







Sorry for my english.

Thx, I did that to add Catalan dictionary.
When reading a catalan book i can press on a word and get its meaning, nice! ;-)

But if a made a search to dictionaries from main screen, there is a bug ;-(
If I select “Extra: ca” language shows “English - English” and word is not found.

On the other hand, French dictionary does'nt appear on dictionaries when searching, although I have it installed, and works well when reading a french book. !?

This is a licensing issue. The license that Kobo have the the French and the Dutch dictionaries means they are not allowed to search them like this. Selecting a word in a book is all they are allowed to do.
