Dictionary bad - Alternative?

Hi,
I use the kobo forma with the latest firmware (4.15).

Before I used the kindle oasis.

With the kobo forma, the dictionary is very bad. There are so many words, that the dictionary dont find. Really many words, that are normaly in my oasis to find.

Is there a possibility to install another one, in german? And if yes, where can I download it or have I to pay for it?

It would be nice, if someone could help me out.

Regards

Take a look at this thread. There are ways to add dictionaries to a Kobo (or replace the builtin ones).

And if You prefer that dictionary You can also apply a patch to avoid to get again the useless default dictionary at synchronization.

This way is too difficult for me, no chance to do that.
I need to convert a mobi-file into a dictionary for my kobo forma. Or somewhere download an excellent dictionary, I also would pay for it.

But the dictionaries there, are the standard ones, or not? That would not help me, because the standard is very poor.
