Recently I was starting to learn Spanish myself, my favorite way to learn a foreign language is to find book written in simple sentences for reading. With a Kindle, it becomes even graceful, the built-in dictionary saves me lots of time and space.
Amazon doesn't provide me a built-in Spanish-English dictionary, and I only found 2 available Spanish-English dictionaries in Kindle Store, but the ratings are below average. I do not want to waste money on a useless dictionary, so I begin to dig my Kindle resource.
In my Kindle library, I saw a book called Real Academia Española el Diccionario de la lengua española, this is a spanish dictionary, isn't it? But what the heck Amazon doesn't allow me to download it. I click the "actions" button but can't see the "Deliver to..." option, and login my Kindle for PC I also can't see it in my "Archived Items" section.
Obviously I have to find a way out myself. After some searches on the internet, I finally got a free and working Spanish to English dictionary for Kindle, it is built by Dave Slusher, he DIYed this Kindle dictionary himself by RUBY scripts.
But here comes another setback, the dictionary is created in 2010 and for Kindle 2, which only uses one dictionary at a time. Therefore I can't use it because I need dictionaries for other languages also.
Then I find Mac Sturm modified the dictionary to make it working on K4 and later models, and click the button below you can download it. Notice: You can download and use for totally free and legit under Creative Commons license: BY-NC-SA.
And I guess some people may also need the English to Spanish dictionary, I've also find a free one for you.
