Spanish-English instant look up translation

Hi there,

I know that Kindle DX is brand new, but I can see that this new model include a Built-in dictionary with instant lookup for english words.

Does anybody know if it's possible to shift the Oxford dictionary to a English-Spanish dictionary so it translates english words to spanish, as easy as the instant look up software does with the oxford one?

I really appreciate your help buddies.

As far as I know, there are no other working dictionaries for Kindle besides the OED.

This is an often requested capability, but it isn't available. See Spanish dictionary - is it really MiA? for a recent discussion (there are others). I don't know why a dictionary publisher has not tried to solve this problem, or perhaps they have and it is Amazon's fault.
