Hi,

I was wondering what is the dictionary format used in pocketbook?
The videos show only an english dictionary, is there any chance to set another dictionary language?
It would be terrific to load wiktionary.org archive on pocketbook.

Regards,

Matthieu

You can download one of the dictionaries here
http://pocketbook-free.sourceforge.net/en/sourcecode.shtml

If I remember correctly, there was discussion here:
http://translate.google.com/translate?&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http://www.the-ebook.org/forum/viewforum.php%3Ff%3D32
about the dictionary being in some open format. There are also some links to dictionaries.

Go to:
http://pocketbook.com.ua/index.php?id=200
and use Google tolbar translate to translate page. You can find:
[PocketBook 301 plus - Standard] -- Dictionaries, Part 1

[PocketBook 301 plus - Standard] -- Converter Dictionary
I also will recomend Pocketbook forum:

I don't know how to handle wiktionary.org, it's an online Wiki, not a downloadable dictionary. But you can use one of the free dictionaries from www.freelang.net . Here are the instructions to convert them to the PocketBook format. I have used this method successfully for an English-German dictionary.

1. Get a dictionary from www.freelang.net and install it somewhere. This will give you one or two files with extension .wb.

2. Get the Tool freelang2txt: http://3ppc.net/Users/SiD/freelang2txt.zip

3. Unpack it to the same directory as the dictionaries, then run
freelang2txt English-German.wb English-German.txt
(you need to change the names depending on the used dictionary)

4. Get the PocketBook converter: http://pocketbook.com.ua/file/DictionaryConverter.zip

5. Unpack it with all subdirs to the same directory as the dictionaries

6. Run
converter.exe English_German.txt eng

The "eng" subdir contains instructions on how to handle things like singular/plural, and the keyboard layout for the PocketBook keyboard. You will need to edit it if the source language is different from English.

There is some kind of downloadable version.
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Help_talk:FAQ#DVD.3F

I will have a look what can be done with it.

You should have said "next Monday".

"next Monday", "soon", and "very soon" are very well established and very popular terms here, especially when it comes to promising features, updates and files available for download.
We have devoted entire threads with no less than 700 posts to discussions what exactly "next Monday" means ;-)

)))))) actually, I'm not a 'manyana-person', I just couldn't do it today, because I was driving all day... it's kind of not very comfortable to upload smth on your website while driving on NJ Tpk))

Let me be the one who'll break these "next Monday" rules))) - as promised, some dictionaries are there, on http://www.pocketbookreader.com/Downloads.html, as well as converter for dictionaries, latest firmware for PB301+ and some themes.
