ANy ideas?
I tried to replicate the problem without success. If you've compiled your own dictionary, can you provide me your dictionary sources and your phonems.txt, keyboard.txt and collates.txt?

I just uploaded in my previous message an improved dictionary, and I'll take a look to other english dictionaries you kindly provided me.
thanks for the clarification, and thanks for the improved dictionary!

accent problem in dictionary (epub format?)

Your ebooks are in epub format, perhaps?
actually it's a problem regarding italian books also, and I wonder if appears in other languages. After some tests involving a maddening procedure for embedding a font in epub files, I think it's something related to epub interpreter, because I tried the same book in txt, rtf, pdb formats and there's no problem with them, the word is entirely highlighted.

So my advice is using calibre to convert in rtf and check if the problem persists.

Babylon(BGL) dictionaries to PocketBook(DIC) format

i needed some dictionaries which were available only in Babylon(BGL) format and so after an hour of research was able to successfully convert them to PocketBook(DIC) format. so, if anyone's interested, i can explain the whole process in details.

Babylon has tons of dictionaries for free that you can download:

Babylon(BGL) dictionaries to PocketBook(DIC) format

OK, the process is threefold, but its pretty straight forward, just simple conversions, nothing more;

BGL --> DICT --> XDXF --> DIC

Note: According to PB's "converter.exe" instructions, the second conversion step(dict to xdxf) could have been avoided but "converter.exe" couldn't process the converted DICT files.



Step 1(Linux only):

There is a converter called “dictconv” for BGL to DICT, but its only available for linux. In my case, I have ubuntu running in a virtual machine. I just typed the following and “dictconv” was installed :

sudo apt-get install dictconv


Now, the conversion step: (“test.BGL” being your Babylon dictionary file, also called Glossary file)

dictconv test.BGL -o test.ifo


The above command produces 3 files:
test.dict
test.idx
test.ifo


Note: if you're using another linux distribution, here is the link to dictconv page.
and some other links I found regarding dictconv installation and conversion: link1 and link2



Step 2(Windows/Linux):

There is an app which converts many different dictionary formats, called Linguae. Here is the link.
In Linguae you can open the “test.dict” file using

File->Open a dictionary...

and then

File->Export...

in the window which opens choose to convert to XDXF format; after conversion a file called “dict.xdxf” is created which is the one you will need for the final conversion.



Step 3(Windows):

The normal PB dictionary conversion process.

For those who never done this before, you can download it from here and then follow the instructions. If still not sure, you can always ask...

Ok, for me as a dumb windows user would you please be so kind to convert the two dictionaries I've added.

@sarkash: thanks and karma, though as a windows user I am afraid I won't be able to follow your steps.

@paolamanzini: here you can get some xdxf free dictionaries; just one step standard PB dictionary conversion; Windows only.


@troll05: here you go... (you can also try the En-De dictionary from xdxf site; might have a better formatting)
