Dizionario Dictionary Italiano Inglese. PDF
#1  Clemenseken 12-05-2007, 05:14 PM
Hi!

I just finished my personal version(s) of an "Italian-to-English" Dictionary. (EDIT1: Two different fonts used.)

EDIT2: There are also two versions "English-to-Italian" further down: (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/att...8&d=1197408251)

I got the original text files from www.freedict.com, converted it to html, formatted/added items, imported it into Acrobat 5 (not: Reader), made some smaller changes and saved it as PDF.

The file is meant for my SONY PRS500. Size is according. (EDIT3: Engl.>Ital. has page numbers.)
Navigation of the 10,000-plus words is by jumping to

a) letters (A,B,C... - rare letters moved to end)
b) list of starting-words, 3 "pages" apart (a,aiuto,amore,auto...) => max. 3 page turns per word (IF contained)

BUT it is a normal PDF, so you can read it like any other...

IMPORTANT: I used freedicts ORIGINAL text list -- which means all THEIR faults (e.g. some doublets etc.) are in it AS IS.

If anybody is intersted in this (so far very personal) projects, has any questions or remarks (have pity on me!) I'll be glad to discuss 'em.

Hope it's of use to someone "out" there!

Sorry - first upload

Hi! This version uses a font like Times.
The Upload in my next reply contains the font "Verdana" which I find to be better readable on my Sony Reader ...


Sorry.

Edit: I herewith withdraw my previously attached PDF dictionary file ("fdItaEng_Dizionario.pdf").

I had asked for feedback on their usability but only got posts from exactly *T*W*O* members - as compared to over 1,400 downloads...

(I don't mind anybody else placing any of these PDFs in a new thread. But I won't engage in this project any more.)

Just convinced my acrobat to include Verdana.
(I think "her" much better readable on eink...)

Salve!

Non parlo Italiano molto bene, ma eccoli:
una versione del dizionario mio per gli Italiani...

Well. I hope someone can use this dictionary.
I improved the navigation (relative to the Italian>English version) to use fewer cursor moves.
My current estimation is ZERO moves of the small cursor to arrive at "a" (uno) up to an average of 10 moves (NOT page turns - which are very slow).
This average can be nearly halved if you move your cursor *UP* initially to get to items in the lower half of any screen...

I'd be grateful for any remarks on usability!
Clemens


(P.s.: further down this page http://www.mobileread.com/forums/att...8&d=1197408251 is a slightly improved version. Words are listed below each other and got page numbers attached.)


Sorry - mi dispiace...

This is very useful; I will use it on my Cybook which is the same size as the Sony Reader. I am supposed to get i back from Bookeen on Monday where it is actually for reparation.
Meanwhile, would it be possible to do a similar job for an Italian-German dictionary by using this source? http:http://infoportal-deutschland.aus-stade.de/Italienisch///
Just a question.

Hello Maximilian,

actually I've been looking for a suitable Italienisch-Deutsch dictionary file.

I looked into your recommended website. Quite impressive.

I also mailed to the site owner to ask about copyright issues - otherwise I would not be able to distribute a selfmade PDF file in this forum.

But I will create an Italienisch-deutsches Wörterbuch auf jeden fall, denn das würde mir bei schwierigeren/selteneren Vokabeln selbst auch besser helfen!

An Freunde/gute Bekannte dürfte ich das aber zum Eigengebrauch aber wohl schon weitergeben...



Viele Grüße, Clemens


P.s.: the German text above means that I am allowed to pass on a privately created dictionary to close friends even if copyrights may be an issue - according to German law.
(It is legal to make up to seven copies of music and give 'em to friends. But: no money may be received. These friends again have the right to pass this music to seven of THEIR friends - without financial gain! And so on... Nice, isn't it?!?)

Hello Clemens,
I have now my Gen3 back and installed your dictionary. It fits superbly well on the screen. However, the present version of my Cybook does not support hyperlinks in PDF. Hence, I cannot navigate within the dictionary by using the hyperlinked words of your index. I can only move to specific pages. I would thus need for each of your indexed words the corresponding page number. On the computer it is of course quite easy to find these page numbers but I cannot go into your document to annotate it. Any solution?
Tanti saluti
Peter

Hi Peter!

Can you tell me what "exactly" would help you BEST?

I am anyway planning to re-format the starting pages (with letters/words) because I noticed that it would be more intuitive to list the "letter-words" below each other - as I have to move the minute "joystick" of the Sony PRS500 UP and DOWN to reach other hyperlinks (=words).

As I can easily see in Acrobat where these links point to I might as well append page numbers (in brackets, e.g.).

But please tell me, what would be best for YOU!

Salve da Francoforte! Ciao, Clemens

Hi Peter,

here is a version with page numbers attached (to links).
How do you normally navigate on your Gen3 reader?
Is it only in PDFs that you cannot hyperjump? (and what do you do instead...)
If so, in what formats CAN you jump?
I know i might find oiut answers in this forum, but it might be easier for you to just write down two sentences for me - thanks!

(I'm still interested in feedback from you and others!)

Have a nice evening/day, Clemens
