Hi Alexandru Anastasiu,

thanks for your message!

On Android, you also need to install the dictionary application. You can install it from the Market or if that's not an option for you download it from sourceforge.net (the link to the zipped package). After installing the application, open it, load a dictionary (e.g. Menu -> Dictionary) and choose the Download tab for easy installation of many popular dictionaries.

If you want to install the dictionary manually you have to choose the From file tab. Here you browse to the jar file (the jad file is not needed). For improved performance I recommend extracting the jar file first (you can rename it to zip if there are any problems extracting it). There should be a directory called dictionary, this is the only one we need. Then in the Android application you can browse to that directory and load it.


2. I have dictionaries in .txt file, downloaded from this site: http://www.dicts.info/uddl.php and I don't know how to integrate them into your app. mentioned at the first sentence.
As far as I know the txt files are not supported. The only files directly supported on dicts.info are the ones listed here. If the dictionary you are looking for is not available there and you have some time, you could try using the tools on our website to generate your own dictionary.

Please feel free to ask again here if you have any questions, and we'd also like to know if it is helpful for you :)

Cheers,
axin

Thank you very much. Now it works. But the procedure is a little bit complicated for creating the dictionaries. I have already the .txt files for latin-romanian, romanian-latin, romanian-greek, greek-romanian and no time for converting with your word byword procedure. Do you have a tool for automatically transformation from .txt to .jar?
Thank you

Great to know it's working now!

I'm sorry I don't really know about dictionary creation. You could ask again in the other forum, there are some people watching the topics there who might be able to help you:

One thread seems to have some GUI tools, maybe you could try that one first:
