Can you write a script for converting .prc file (kindle ebook dictionary) for use in Stardict like eStardict, Mstardict, etc? or update the words data to the latest version.

looking at your screenshots, i noticed there is no ipa(phonetic alphabets) next to the word entries? and it can be scrolled down or up the recommended list to browse the dictionary?

I don't have kindle so I'm interested in this script
maybe you can find someone that already did this kind of script, the stardict format is pretty popular

1.I can share with you the kindle .prc dictionary file, it is very hard to find a script on the internet for this purpose.

2.The available stardict dictionary(oxford advanced learners"s dictionary) does not have the IPA, hence the need to add it. it is important for me and the other english learners

3.I have MStardict installed in my N900, when I search a word (for an example "car"), it give me a very short list which starts with the word" car" and ends with the word" carburettor", and then I cant scroll the list down(or up) any longer to look for other words that are not in the list.

4. Kindle .prc dictionary(oxford advanced learners's dictionary 7th edition)
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7mfe98i7tu...%20edition.prc

5. can you make the fonts of the examples in the definition to be italic style, different colors for idiom, phrasal verbs, etc for us to easily indentify them just like what the physical oxford dictionary book looks like.

Hope my dream come true. thanks

Hi, I saw the format of the prc dictionary (http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/articl...e=indexing.htm) is completely different from the StarDict format (http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~vaudano...DictFileFormat) for using this file you need a completely new search engine...

Yes, for performance reasons it gives you only a short list of suggested words

That is the same file I am using on my N900 with Mstardict, there is No IPA, Example is not shown in Italic font, etc. Is it possible for you to add these features to that words database/eStardict?

Do you know how to convert .bgl (Babylon dictionary) to Stardict?
Look at this link
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1044452
I got a "out of memory" error when I use the unpackbgl



Babylon dictionary
https://www.dropbox.com/s/mt8ai56l44...n-En-OALD8.bgl

Unpackbgl( this version is 1.4.2)

No possible, because the kindle format is an HTML format that contain these informations, the StarDict format is plain test.
