So nice to have both a Chinese-English and a Japanese-English dictionary. My Kobo will be getting much more of a workout from hereon in. So much nicer than reading on a tablet or a computer screen.

I am glad that this stuff is useful to somebody!

English-Chinese dictionary

I'm looking for an English-Mandarin dictionary for Kobo. Did you manage in the end to make one?
Do you know if there is one available anywhere online?

As a Chinese, there are also some chinese characters don't recognition , especially the pronunciation.

So, I want to make a dictionary include Chinese-Chinese and English-Chinese. When reading with English books, this dictionary can translate some English words to Chinese, And when reading Chinese books, can also consult some rare characters or word pronunciation and meaning.

About merge the English-English dictionary with the English-Chinese dictionary, here some stardict dictionary file like Oxford English-Chinese is already included English-English and English-Chinese.

Btw. here anyway can rename dicthtml-ja.zip as dicthtml.zip to direct used in kobo?

Not sure if there is one available to use for the Kobo firmware.

However, if you install the KOreader firmware on your Kobo, there are a number of such dictionaries in the Stardict format, freely available and easy to install inside the KOreader firmware.

I currently have 6 different Chinese dictionaries installed under KOreader on both my Kobos.

Here is a link to the github site which contains information about dictionary support for KOreader: https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ionary-support

Dear tshering,

It does't work on my Kobo Glo HD. Please help me, I have been trying for more than 10 times.

These are my steps:
1. Download your zip. file rename it to "dicthtml-jaxxdjs"
2. Download a japanese dictionary in my Kobo
3. Connect my Kobo and find /dict./, then replace the downloaded "dicthtml-jaxxdjs" with existing dicthtml-jaxxdjs.
4. Disconnect and open my Kobo, but the dictionary still doesn't translate my highlighted English words into Chinese.

Can anyone let me know what is the steps that I have missed?

Really appreciate if you can help me. Thank you.

This dictionary translates from Chinese to English, not from English to Chinese.

The selection of characters is not done by the dictionary, it is done by you. Try to find a way to select the characters you want that works for you by slightly shifting your finger, rolling it a bit, and so on. If it does not work for you, you might also consider trying koreader.

Sorry, I only just saw this post. After I got my KA1 set up the way I like it, I haven't been visiting the Kobo forums much of late as i haven't been updating my KA1.

As for the Chinese dictionaries which I use, you can download them all from here: http://download.huzheng.org/

If you click on the zh CN link, you will find dictionaries in simplified characters. Clicking on the zh TW link will take you to dictionaries in traditional characters.

Best of luck. And again sorry for the late reply.
