The French dictionary on Kobo is very poor. That's why I was installing another one. And it was great, better than the one on Kindle, which is very good.

Oh dear, is it? I read a fair bit of French, but obviously haven’t done much recently on the Kobo. Is it bad at matching verb tenses to the correct verbs? That is always frustrating.

Yes it is possible. I've seen someplace (before the new dictionaries) that someone had converted the Oxford English Dictionary to work with a Kobo. I cannot say how it was done only that it was done.

It's like a children dictionary. Very small amount of words.

Oh dear, that's bad. I have just downloaded it, and I see what you mean. It's hardly finding anything! I had been using a French to English dictionary, which is very good (it is the Oxford one).
