Converting Kindle dictionaries to Kobo

Hello folks!

I’m an addict usuary of Kindle Voyage, but I’m planning to get Kobo Aura One. Its improvements have won me over: what an amazing screen size!
But I’m worried about my dictionaries … I’ve got some Merriam-Websters that I really like it (Btw, I have paid for them). Is it possible to convert them (azw format) to use in Kobo?
(I’ve been reading previous threads, but I’m not a Linux Jedi, so I’d like to ask if there is an easy way to do this – maybe a step by step guide to Linux non-experts?...)

Thank you!

Conversion from Kindle dictionaries can be done. It's just that nobody has yet done it (that I know of).
