DictionaryForMIDs is a collection of mobile Java dictionaries for just about every phone that can handle Java.
All the major european languages are covered, and the latest updates include a couple of asian languages. In addition to translation there's also a Webster dictionary version.
There's a lot left to improve, though. Apart from the not-so-convenient user interface, the ugly program icons, and long dictionary names which don't fit under the icon, there's a more serious flaw: installing multiple dictionaries requires manual editing of the installation files. But it's free and it works.
Dicts.info is like DictionaryForMIDs with a few more features, but with less language pairs to choose from.
• Dicts.info for Java
KODi is another collection of dictionaries. Each language pair comes in different flavours: high performance, small file, very small file, the choice is yours.
JLearnIt is a dictionary program with 15 languages in one package with an excellent user interface.
