Converting PWN Oxford Polish-English dictionary to Mobipocket

If there are any Polish users here or just anyone interested in a Polish-English dictionary then they'll be happy to learn that it's possible to turn PWN Oxford Polish-English dictionaries into a Mobipocket one.

You need 2 Python scripts: and You can find the first one @

Pwn2tabfile supports 2004, 2006 and 2007 editions of the PWN Oxford dictionary. It preserves all formatting so it's really cool. :-)

After you use (remember to use "-utf" option) you need to generate a .mobi file out of the .opf. Use either mobigen or Mobipocket Creator to do this.

If you want to convert Collin's Polish-English, English-Polish dictionary see the tool compiled by rhari79 (thanks again!) here:
