Index of Custom Dictionaries for Kobo eReader

Hi, I am Alberto Pettarin, the creator of Penelope, a tool for creating/merging/converting dictionaries, including the Kobo format.

Since I am overloaded by requests like "can you convert this dictionary X for my Kobo?", I start this thread to collect links to custom dictionaries for Kobo eReaders.

Please respect the copyright laws, and NEVER EVER post about converted dictionaries that infringe them. (Also, do not attempt at mailing me asking for converting copyrighted material, I will not help you on that.)

Instructions on how to install a custom dictionary on your Kobo can be found in the README of the GitHub repo: https://github.com/pettarin/penelope

Hyphenation dictionaries (to improve justified text display, not to give definitions or translations) can be found in this thread maintained by JSWolf.

Click on the following button to see the list of dictionaries:

Thank you so much! I believe the "Latin-English" link is to the wrong page.

You are welcome. The Latin-English link is correct, it is just outside MR forum. I clarified it in the first post.

I should have mentioned that I have done it already, (and it is not clear to me who is the mod of this section), that is why I posted the previous message.

Hi,

if your input dictionary:

1) is in public domain, CC licensed, or the like,
2) is in one of the input formats supported by Penelope,

you can mail me a link to a file locker/Dropbox/etc. where you uploaded your input file(s). Otherwise, you need to set your own box up.

PS: you also posted in the wrong thread. Please do not reply here, thanks.

e-dict utility for converting free dictionaries

Hi,

I have created a utility to convert open source dictionaries for usage with e-book readers. It can be found here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/edict/

You can find the source code and the Windows executable there and additionally one English German Dictionary for the Kobo readers that was created out of the Beolingus file that can be found at http://ftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/Local/...g/de-en-devel/.
This file has ~138000 entries and is much more comprehensive as the built-in English German dictionary. I've been using it for some time now and am quite satisfied.

In the current version there is also support for the TEI-format. You can find lots of files to convert here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/freedict/

Future plans are to support more e-reader formats and more dictionary formats. I already had a look at the Cybook Odyssey format and at the Stardict format, but during summertime (and additionally soccer worldcup ) development will be rather slow, so have a look later this year...

The program was developed in C++ using the free MS Visual Studio Express 2013 development environment. The marisa and the zip library are linked into the program so it should run standalone without installing further utilities on any Windows PC. It was actually written without Windows dependencies, so it should compile under Linux too, but I've never tried and will probably never do...

Documentation is still rather limited, to create a dictionary from the above mentioned Beolingus file the syntax would be:
e-dict.exe -d C:\pathtofile\de-en.txt -t 0

to create a dictionary from a TEI file:
e-dict.exe -d C:\pathtofile\de-en.tei -t 1

the created dictionary file will be named dicthtml.zip. Rename it as neccessary and transfer it to your Kobo. This process is extensively described in the forum here and other locations...

Hope you like it, maybe some of you decide to help me with further development or documentation which would be very welcome!

P.S. Why this tool, when Penelope is already around?
Well, good point...but easily explained: I started development before i stumbled upon Penelope...

Hi HerbD,

congratulations for willing to delve into the hell of dictionaries for ereader

I strongly suggest you to open another thread (moving there the post above), so your project might get more attention than being buried here, since this thread is about something else.

Note: I tried compiling your code on my Debian machine with g++, and it does not compile out-of-the-box, due to (missing) SDKDDKVer.h, which seems to be MS VC++ stuff.
