Yes. Mobipocket dictionaries can be both "same language" or "translation" dictionaries. Devices like the CyBook Gen3 support Mobi dictionaries. I have the Mobi version of the "Unabridged Chambers Dictionary" on mine.

Although the firmware could do with some fine tuning, it's brilliant for dealing with all different formats and all different languages. As I come by my reading from all sorts of places (web sites, RSS feeds, electronic text books, e-mails from penfriends etc) it's brilliant. It's only PDFs that have been a nuisance so far, if they are formatted for A4 paper. Then I convert them to text. All the other formats have been fine.
I can also download mp3 audiobooks and listen to them on my "book". Presumably I can listen to an audio book while reading the text version (helpful because I'm a poor reader in Russian) but I haven't figured it out yet.
The reader, being the size of a DVD box, fits into large pockets and the 6" screen is easy to read. Replaceable battery and lots of scope for fiddling.
I also found the Pixelar people to be friendly and easy to deal with.
