Kindle Fire & language translation dictionaries

Kindle fire owners can you help! has anyone managed to use a standalone translation dictionary on the KFire yet?

On the K4PC App I have tried the method below (as suggested by forum member Doitsu) and it works just fine with My French to English translation dictionary, offering instant look-up.
The KFire to my knowledge runs the Kindle App too, so it may well work!

"The Kindle software versions for PCs and smartphones only support the default 7 monolingual dictionaries. (English US/UK, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese)
The only way to bypass this limitation is to change the ASIN number of the dictionary that you want to use instead.
(The ASIN number for the default French dictionary is B005F12G6U.)
If you want to use your French-English dictionary with K4PC, create a copy of your dictionary, add or change the ASIN to B005F12G6U and replace the default French dictionary in the My Kindle Content folder with your patched version.
IMHO, the easiest way to change the ASIN is to use the "" Mobiperl command line tools with the Mobi2Mobi GUI. (The ASIN is eth type #113.)".

If you have trouble with the Mobi Tools! let me know and I will help if possible.

I Have been trying to decide between the KTouch and KFire, when available in Europe. I already know the method works on the KTouch but If it works on the Kfire also? this would not only allow for my (and other Fire users) language translation needs but it would give me the added benefits the KFire offers.

Many thanks in advance...


Happy Xmas
