    I'm having trouble installing foreign language dictionaries. I'm trying to install Chinese to English.

    These are the steps I followed:
    1) Go to stardict and download
    2) Extract twice to get the three files
    3) put the .dz and .idx file in var/root/library/wedict
    4) set permissions on the wedict folder to 775 or 777

    But this does nothing! Please help.

    Reame file .dz to .gz and gunzip it. You will get a dict file. Upload .dict and .idx to weDict library folder.
