Custom French-Japanese dictionary

Seeing as there is none, I made a French-Japanese dictionary. You can find it attached to this post. It contains a bit over 30.000 entries, but lots of them are colloquialisms and stuff, and there are many doubles. I didn't create the original list, so I don't know exactly how many words there are, but it should contain all the words that have a french definition in the EDICT (see ACKNOWLEDGEMENT), so I guess it should be enough for a beginner or intermediate speaker.

INSTALL

You have to install this dictionary in place of an already existing one on your Kobo. It can be the main definition dictionary or the French-English translation dictionary (since there are no other translation dictionaries installed, I don't think it's gonna work for another language, but feel free to try it). You will have to name the file respectiveley dicthtml-fr.zip for French dictionary and dicthtml-fr-en.zip for French-English dictionary. Then copy the downloaded file without unzipping it in the dict folder that is located in the .kobo folder in the root of your device. That's it, you can eject your Kobo and start using it. It works with my Kobo Touch, I suppose it should work with all others as well.

DISCLAIMER
You assume total responsibility and risk for your use of the provided files; use at your own risk.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
This package uses the EDICT dictionary file. This file is the property of the Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group, and is used in conformance with the Group's licence.

User tshering helped me making this dictionary by explaining to me how the Kobo dictionary system works. Big thanks to him/her. I also used parts of his explanation post (DISCLAIMER and ACKNOWLEDGEMENT). Finally, since he himself thanked other members, although I didn't directly benefit from their help I will quote tshering so that due credit is acknowledged:

Here is a Japanese explanation, since users interested in this are likely to be Japanese and don't necessarily speak english. If it's a problem for the forum because moderators can't read it, I will remove it. Also, if you speak Japanese you will notice I'm still learning, so if you can offer a better version of this explanation please send me a pm and I will include it here.
