I then used a Hex editor to patch these fields in my spanish dictionary to 1034 1034 and in my german dictionary to 1031 1031 (replicating the language locale field indicated by Mobi2Mobi from offset 92).

Now all my dictionaries are switched to properly depending on the language locale of the book read.
can you tell me how you find the right offset that determined the language meta data. my is just like this
