Dictionary coversion from .mobi to pocketbook format?

Hi, I have a dictionary for use with kindle and it consist of only one file in moby format. Is there a way to make this work with my Inkpad 2. And of course if there is such possibility, would someone be willing to explain me how?
Thank you!

Seems unlikely to happen.

How to convert other dictionaries to PocketBook format:

Yes, it is possibile.

Unpack mobi with KindleUnpack:
https://github.com/kevinhendricks/KindleUnpack.git

In mobi7 folder run script to convert html to xdxf
https://pastebin.com/7hkFAmsu
(I know it's ugly)

Convert xdxf to pocketbook format
https://github.com/Markismus/PocketBookDic.git
You must also download pocketbook converter and install wine (on Linux)
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/att...2&d=1262456131
and set path to converter in pocketbookdic.pl
if your dictionary fails to convert - try $isRealDead=0;

Complicated but works

@lin-on Nice that your using the script!!

Or use penelope from github to convert to Stardict and then my script to convert to pocketbook.

Just read the date on the thread. Sorry for necrobump!

@lin-on thank you, it basically works but something is lost in the conversion, I suspect it's the PHP code meesing up. Also when converting from prc using KindleUnpack the RegEx in the PHP script can't find the terms it's looking for, I had to twik it manually (there are added new lines and spaces).

@Markismus according to the documentation penelope can write to mobi but not read it

@Rsf You're completely right. I stumbled on this the other day when I wanted to convert Duden 7th edition from mobi to Stardict.

I've added a conversion from KindleUnpack'ed book.html to xdxf- and Stardict- and pocketbook-format to the pocketbookdic script on github.

I've only converted one two dictionaryies with it, so feel free to test and post issues.

I cannot for the life of me figure this out... Could someone either write a detailed step by step instruction on how to convert, say, an EPUB or MOBI dictionary to a dictionary being used on my pocketbook?? its one of my major beefs with my pocketbook, coming from a Kobo aura h20... the dictionary sucks comparatively

I think you're missing half of the files. The home thread of the script is here on mobileread pocketbook developer's corner.

Couldn't agree more! I love the pocketbook, it's the best device out there. But the dictionary sucks. I just want a English dictionary. But the one that comes with it is super old and has few definitions, and the definitions that it does have are really lackluster too. If someone is willing to do a step by step guide that would be wonderful.

Search this forum for Ronnie Steiner's Wiktionary version of the English dictionary. He even combines the old Webster with the modern Wiktionary entries to make one large dictionary.

@Mora Look at this thread. Not only does it contain the script and setup instructions, it also contains the generated dictionaries. And if you have want only one converted, I am willing to throw it through the script and post a link to it.

Okay, those work. But it has weird formatting and a bunch of jumble. Some looks like code even.

For example when using the 'Oxford's Learners dictionary' the word "Scribe" for that word it comes up with this:

[ scribe scribes scribed scribing ] BrE [skraib]
z_scribe__gb_1.wav NAmE [skrib]
z_scribe__us_1.wav noun a person who made copies of written documents before printing was invented
World Origin:
Middle English (originally referring to a Jewish record-keeper): from Latin scriba , from scribere
'Write'
Example Bank:
• Before paper was common, medieval scribes used parchment or vellum.

And this was one of the clearer ones. But at least you can get the definition out of it.
Using the 'Oxford English Dictionary 2nd Ed' is much worse with the jumble and code.

Thanks anyway

@Mora That looks like an old one version, where the wav-files references aren't stripped. I'll update those links, tomorrow. The present version of Oxford 2nd Ed. looks rather better than Advanced Learners 8th, though.

However, aside from that, what your are looking at is British-English [pronunciation],
North-American-English [pronunciation].

Could it be that you're seeing raw html-code in your pocketbook? I can't take a look myself: Returned the PocketbookInkpad3Pro, because it was too laggy.

@Mora I ran into the same problem you had: html-tags appearing in the result.

Apparently, the script was a bit enthusiastic in converting '<' symbols to '&lt;'. I should have asked for a link to the dictionary that generated the issue. The code in github is now updated to handle it.
