how can I install a dictionary english-italian?

Hi everyone
I'd like to install on my device a dictionary english-italian so that, when I read a book in english and don't know the meaning of a specific word I can click on that one and have the translation ad a result.
I tried downloading some apps from google play, but they don't seem to ne integreted in the text so that only consulting it in the apps section (and not directly from the ebook) I can have a translation.
How can I do?
Thanks.

First you have to install ColorDict or GoldenDict. They are avaible in Play Store. Then you can install the dictionaries. If you can not find the one you're lookin for, there are "external" dictionaries avaible.

ColorDict

GoldenDict

Try searching english-italian stardict on your Onyx Play Store to see which one is avaible...

Or, you can proceed like the FAQ says, here:

Quote:
Does BOOX support dictionaries?

Yes, Onyx BOOX supports dictionaries in StarDict format. On the device you have some free samples. You can use the dictionary while reading an eBook by higliting a word you need to translate. It’s also possible to add your own dictionairies – you can find thousands of them in internet. Make sure they are in StarDict format. How to instal and use a dictionary? Please check user manual.
And the manual says:

Quote:
Users can download
Stardict dictionary and put it into folder “dictionary” on MicroSD
card, then the dictionary can be used when reading;
More details ( from here http://www.onyx-international.com/en...php?serial=876 )

How to install dictionary

1. Download the dictionary from http://sourceforge.net/projects/xdxf...ict-form-xdxf/, then follow the notice to download the dictionary you want accordingly

2. Unzip the dictionary and put this dictionary into SD Card's “dicts/” folder. There are 3 files (.dict.dz,.idx,.ifo ) in each dictionary folder.

3. Insert the SD card into your device and the dictionary will be installed automatically into your device. Then you can use the dictionary while reading.
You can find some compatibles dictionaries here ( thanks to Biopresto):
