Unhappy Encoding? problems with StarDict dictionaries (Portuguese, in this case).

Hi there,

Glad to join the community.
I needed a Portuguese dictionary and I found THE dictionary in StarDict format:
http://www.dicionario-aberto.net/

It works on my PC, BUT not on my boox i62. It crashes with the first word.
I contacted the author, who kindly sent me two different versions. One of them does not crash, but the characters are not recognized by the ebook. Not just a few accents, but more than 90% of them.
It feels as if it is just a matter of ENCODING IT properly.

I have put here all the FILES uncompressed:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/aaybdduwu...GKPVtKyYuagpra

I wonder if there is someone around who could help by:
- trying the dictionary in his/her ebook,
- sharing a similar experience,
- CONVERTING THE FILE to a suitable format or encoding or whatever,
- suggesting an alternative (Portuguese dictionary in Portuguese, not Portuguese-English).

I have tried myself converting from other formats to Stardict, converting these dictionaries back and forth, trying to change the encoding... but nothing worked.

Thank you in advance!!

Finally solved by changing the extension of the file from .dict to .dict.dz.
Thank you to the 331 readers of the message, anyway!
