Greek-English dictionary support with Kindle 3

Foreign language dictionary support has been a difficult issue with the Kindle 2. As such I am considering an upgrade to a Kindle 3 but would like to know if the issue has been resolved. I have heard that in some respects it is better but after much searching I still cannot figure whether the issue I am having will be resolved.

I am using a Greek lexicon provided in mobi format by another user here on MobileRead. The Greek text displays fine and I can even set the dictionary as my primary dictionary but quick lookups (or any lookups) do not work, at all. I can browse the dictionary, but that is not very helpful and without the ability to enter greek text, I cannot even jump between sections!

The best I can do on the Kindle 2 is get Greek text into the search bar with a font hack, but searching the dictionary doesn't work even with that method, it just hangs until I press back.

Interestingly, the dictionary lookups work flawlessly with Mobipocket Reader on the PC with this dictionary.

Hi Ryan,

I have a Kindle 3 and would be keen to test this out (and would be happy to report back!). Unfortunately though your link to the lexicon isn't working. Would you be able to share the dictionary (or a working link)?

Hi guys!

Do you have a Greek-English mobipocket dictionary already?
If yes, could you send it to me?
