I'm not sure if it's that easy. It looks like the Oxford dictionaries may be available for PocketBook eReaders (at least used to be). Here's a link to one of them at Bookland.

They even have instructions on how to install them on PocketBook readers.

(I'm guessing the New Oxford American Dictionary may not be the one you want, though.)

Yeah, I thought they're just ordinary mobi/azw files but it seems they're something proprietary. As a test I've had Calibre convert a 700 KB mobi dictionary into epub half an hour ago and the job's still running. I wonder what will come out.

Sorry for not following up, my computer crashed the first time I tried to convert the thing. The second time it took 3 hours. In the end I just got a regular EPUB file, except every dictionary entry is its own html page inside the EPUB, that is, it's an EPUB with 10k subpages.

I wonder what's the PBI format that Pocketbook seems to use, Calibre doesn't give me an option to convert to it.
