mobi sözlüğe eklemektense baştan babylon( linuxta "dictconv" ile stardict'e çevirerek ) yada stardict bir sözlükle başlamak daha kolay bir yol olur. "stardict editor" stardict sözlükleri txt haline getiriyorki düzeni bozmadığın sürece istediğin gibi oynama yapabilirsin. yani işlem sırasında format sırası (babylon) -stardict-txt-html-mobi(prc) şeklinde. bu thread'te nasıl yapıldığı anlatılmış durumda zaten.( "dictconv" ve "stardict editor" sonrasında:http://j.mp/kzLkUj)

This may sound kinda strange but I was just wondering something. I have looked into the thread a bit and I noticed that most of the files that you are sharing are .mobi files. That seems pretty encouraging to me.

What I want is not to compile a dictionary, but rather buy a much more comrehensive one from mobipocket. I have not been able to find any info, so I thought I'd rather ask here.

Let's suppose that I buy Harrap's Shorter French-English dictionary, download it in .mobi format. Will I be able to use that as a default dictionary when reading books on my Kindle? I don't want to leave the book I'm reading each time I want to look up a word, as I'm sure all of you would sympathize with me. Just like already supplied one with the Kindle on purchase, I want to drag to cursor to the word I want to find a definition for and want to see the definition on a small box on the page that I'm currently reading.

I would like to know if this is at all possible. I know that this seems a bit off-topic but this place seemed to be the best for such a question, instead of starting a new thread.

Thank you very much in advance for any interest you might take in this.

Cheers!

welcome to the forum
Kindle works with mobi dicts without any problem.If there is more than one dict for the same language you can choose one of them as Primary Dictionary. However dicts should have some property: it should be marked as dict, its language should be described same with input language and input and output languages should be described on metadata. I think any professional dict has these properties. And even not, you can easily change by first deDRM then change metadata by mobi2mobi app. (as far as I know,on Kindle instant dict feature works only one way (ie "Fr to Eng" or "Eng to Fr" ) If you make two copy of a two-sided dict with corresponding language settings, it should also work. (If the dict is DRMed then you should be careful. It may not work properly.)

Can someone confirm this method is still working for the new Kindle 4?
Also, I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with an English-Dutch dictionary.

Thanks in advance

i am trying to create a Turkish ->English dictionary with the look up feature and i have implemented the generation of noun inflections and working with the verbs now.

BUT i ran into a problem with my Kindle Touch. when I loaded my dictionary into Kindle, for some words it shows the translations just perfectly when I tap them, but for others it just flashes and displays nothing, not even "No Definition Found" window!

e.g. when I tap "gerçekliğe" it shows me the basic form "gerçeklik",
but when I tap "hastalığın" it shows nothing, even though my dictionary does list this form in the <idx:iform> tag

it seems like it works badly with words which contains "ı" (dotless i) in them, but not only. how do I deal with this issue? those of you guys who implemented inflections, did you have to deal with the special symbols? please help

Ok I got pretty sure that the look up feature doesn't work properly whenever the inflections include non ANSI symbols (outside of 0-255 range).

Has anyone tried to make the look up work with other non ANSI alphabets such as (I believe) Croatian Romanian or Hungarian, or even completely different alphabets like Russian or Arabic? I wonder if the problem exists with Kindle Touch only.

I didn't realize a problem related with "ı"on my dict (osm>tur) maybe you are right.
