Odyssey Converting dictionaries via Penelope.
#1  CampfireEdition 08-18-2020, 08:15 AM
Hey, guys. I think I've read everything available on this topic, but I still have zero ideas, how to do this. Maybe I am missing something, but I've never worked with python before and I simply have no knowledge. Maybe there is a thorough guide, how to pull this, or maybe there is another way to get some EN/EN anf EN/RU dictionaries?

Hello CampfireEdition,

Penelope is here:

If you scroll down on the linked page you see what you must do to install and use.
It is most easily done in Linux, but you could install python on windows and run it from there.

The help states:
optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -d, --debug enable debug mode (default: False) -f LANGUAGE_FROM, --language-from LANGUAGE_FROM from language (ISO 639-1 code) -i INPUT_FILE, --input-file INPUT_FILE input file name prefix(es). Multiple prefixes must be comma-separated. -j INPUT_FORMAT, --input-format INPUT_FORMAT from format (values: bookeen|csv|kobo|stardict|xml) -k, --keep keep temporary files (default: False) -o OUTPUT_FILE, --output-file OUTPUT_FILE output file name -p OUTPUT_FORMAT, --output-format OUTPUT_FORMAT to format (values: bookeen|csv|epub|kobo|mobi|stardict|xml)
So to use it for bookeen, you take e.g. a stardict dictionary and convert it to bookeen:
python -m penelope -i stardict-dictionary-name -j stardict -f en -t ru -p bookeen -o bookeen-dictionary-name
