1 AM in the morning, I picked a Bangla book in my kindle. (I found that .epub book from here: http://eboipotro.github.io/ and converted it to .awz3). When I started reading I realized that I don’t have any dictionary for this language in my Kindle. Fast forward to 7 AM, I made my own dictionary.
I did some google searches and couldn’t find any Bangla dictionary for kindle. Then I started looking for how to create your own dictionary files for kindle. Then I came across this blog post: https://1manfactory.com/create-your-own-kindle-dictionary-for-every-language-for-free/. This blog post describes step by step process of how to make a dictionary for kindle devices.
Now I need a Bangla dictionary database to make my kindle dictionary. I got it from here: https://accessibledictionary.gov.bd/. This website has a downloadable desktop version which includes a SQLite database file. I used that one to generate my dictionary files.
As the website had a few Bangla dictionaries (BN to BN, BN to EN, EN to BN etc.) I tried to convert most of them for Kindle devices. So I made these dictionary files for kindle:
- Bangla to Bangla Dictionary
- Bangla to English Dictionary
- English to Bangla Dictionary
- Bangla to Bangla & English Dictionary
These files are available here: https://github.com/nazmulhossainnihal/kindle-bangla-dictionary
First of all, thank you so much for sharing. Would you create another one or edit the current one which doesn’t have the text “compiled by nihal”. You can email me the edited one and leave the original one here just as is. I would greatly appreciate it.
I’m sorry if you are mistaken or something. I only did it as a hobby, and I needed a Bengali dictionary for my kindle.
I decided to share it so other people could benefit from it. Asking for removing my name in this way from the work I did is just outright disrespectful. Maybe at least give a reason why you want it or something.

I can do it for you if you need it, as a paid job. Please email me.
Reason? It’s that simple, seeing your name under every single word page is distracting and downright unprofessional on your part. I never saw any dictionary before where someone puts their name under every word, lol. It felt cheap knockoff which I didn’t want to put on my kindle. Never mind, I got another one, clean of self-obsessive remarks of course.
I am going to say the same thing I said to you in the email: THIS WAS NEVER MENT TO BE A PROFESSIONAL WORK. This is a hobbyist work and I am gonna make it however I like. If I put my picture on it it’s my choice. I don’t answer anyone about something that I host on my website.
I am under no obligation to fulfil your disrespectful requests. I am not your bitch. I am glad that you got another dictionary for your kindle. I hope you will be able to shove it up to your butt in peace.
