On my old e-ink Kindle, I was able to download (I think I paid for it) a French-English translation dictionary. But it meant that if I wanted to use an English dictionary later, I had to manually change it back. The system recognized it as an English dictionary and not a French one so it did not automatically use it when I read French books.
If all you want it ferai=to do then you can do that with an e-ink Kindle.
I believe, though, that the issue with the Kindle's French dictionary is that it can't cope with words with articles. It will translate "eau" as "water", but it can't handle "l'eau". That severely restricts its usefulness, because the user has no control over which parts of the word are selected when looking up a word in the dictionary.
