DEX for Kindle - Romanian dictionary

I just finished converting the main definitions from the dexonline.ro database into a basic working Kindle dictionary.

Tools I used:

  1. DEXOnline database snapshot - definitions table contains everything already formatted. Great work ! http://dexonline.ro
  2. xampp lite (for instant mysql and phpMyAdmin ) http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
  3. phpMyAdmin for exporting data into a tab delimited file.
  4. tab2opf.py script from http://www.klokan.cz/projects/stardict-lingea/
  5. Mobipocket Creator : http://www.mobipocket.com/en/downloadsoft/productdetailscreator.asp
Main credits for the tool chain go to this forum : http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20480 .

The final product can be downloaded here.
