reader with good dictionary and vocabulary list

Hi

[if this thread is duplicated, please, delete one of them. I sent it but something went wrong probably, so I have sent it again]

I am looking for ebookreader with quite good dictionary - most important for me is EN-EN, but would be nice to also have a possibility to install other languages.

What is most important for me:
1. it has to work really fast - I use dictionary very often, so waiting 1-2 seconds for cloud with translation is an eternity
2. every checked word has to be saved in a list and I want to know how many time each word was checked in dictionary. Would be nice if it save also translation and whole sentence from book (it's my dream )
3. I need to export this list as some kind of txt file (html, csv, xml, whatever ...)
4. I want to choose(!) one dictionary as a default, but I also want to have possibility to use another dictionery (for instance by pressing button in cloud with translation)
5. All these options should be available from software menu, I do not want to 'hack' anything - I don't have a time for this type of work
6. no additional costs (dictioneries etc) unless it solves all my problems

Probably such kind of reader doesn't exist but it doesn't hurt to ask.

I had 'hacked' Kobo with Android (Tolino) onboard. If I remember correctly I was using StarDict/GoldenDict/ColorDict or something like that. There was possibility to export vocabulary list, words were counted, but there was no possiblity to translate and save phrases (just single words), and it worked really slow.
Ps. I know that Kindle has it's own app for vocabulary but I would like to import words to Anki.

The Kindle will do nearly everything you ask for. I'm not sure if it's vocabulary list can be exported. I turn off the vocabulary list feature so I don't know much about it except that it's there.

The Kindle also comes with both an American English dictionary and a British English dictionary and it's trivial to switch back and forth between them. They're pre-installed so there's no waiting for a network connection. I've often seen people in these forums say it's the best of the ereader dictionaries but I find the Kobo and the Nook dictionaries adequate as well. I think they're all good. I use the dictionary a lot.

I think the Kindles are the only ones that use the Oxford Dictionaries now. Sony used them in the past.

All words that you look up (but not the definitions) will be stored in an unencrypted sqlite database on the Kindle.
You could use Kindle Mate to extract the words and to add definitions from third party dictionaries.
