Thanks for the link to JavaMobi Metadata Editor. Mobi2Mobi does show three entries, but one of these is sometimes wrong.

The input and output languages are indeed correct for the MobiPocket 1932-35 Academie Francaise dictionary.

However the problem with the Merriam Webster French-English and Spanish-English translation dictionaries is that the input and output languages are reversed, as shown in the attached image. These input and output languages are the same as the corresponding English-French and English-Spanish dictionaries, and so correct in the English-* dictionaries but wrong for the *-English ones.

I can use the editor to correct these settings, but the corrected file is then not recognised when uploaded to the Kindle. I guess that this is because the file is protected against tampering by a CRC calculation.
