Norwegain dictionary

Hi, I can’t seem to grasp how to make a Norwegian Bokmål dictionary. Would you mind converting this one for me? I would really appreciate it

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

And because this dictionary is in stardict format, I'll be able to use it on my Onyx devices as well. Always useful to have another dictionary. Thanks.
Many thanks. Now I'm sure that the stardict version works well.
I tested the kobo version from the previous post with the new firmaware version (that finally reads the chinese fonts) and it doesn't work; I think there's some problem with the penelope conversion....
So, my question is: if anyone of you wants to try the stardict -> kobo conversion is welcome. I'll put again the link with the stardict files down here

PS The chinese abbreviation is zh

I can't convert .xml to stardict dictionary. It says ''permission denied'' when i try to convert via penelope. I tried this line:
Code:
$ penelope -i INPUT_FILE -j INPUT_FORMAT -f LANGUAGE_FROM -t LANGUAGE_TO -p OUTPUT_FORMAT -o OUTPUT_FILE [OPTIONS]
Can someone convert this .xml dictionary to stardict format?:

Attached Kobo version converted by Penelope 3.1.3 from Semwize's Stardict (if you still needed).
BTW, your XML file is not good, all penelope versions report successful conversion but result is a ~200 Byte fake.

Dear Forum users,

I am very impressed by your support for each other and your work. I tried to follow your instructions to create a Turkish - English dictionary for my Kobo and I completey failed. Currently I am learning Turkish and all dictionaries here are the other way around.
Would someone be so kind to convert the Babylon file below?

Thank you very much!

All the best
Niculin

You must test it. I attached it down

Moreover I've found a link in this same thread of a tr-tr dictionary (It could be useful when the tr-en fails to find a word)

Thank you very much! It works as wished for. Now I can try some more difficult books^^. And a good idea with the tr-tr dictionary as an addition.
