Change Google Play Books Dictionary Language
Is it possible to change the Google Play Books Dictionary Language?
I really dig the fact that I can side-load books and that these will stay synced throughout all of my devices. What thrills me even more is that I can still read my books no matter where I am as long as the device has a browser. This is a killer feature for me.
HOWEVER, everything else about Play Books seems to be sooooo far behind the competition. But one step at a time. I like my phone in English. I download my apps in English. I read most of my books in English. But I also read books in Spanish when that's the book's original language.
In Kobo (which, if it had the sideloaded sync would be my absolute reader of choice) I can easily highlight a word and it will look up the meaning, but if I happen to be reading a book in another language, I can easily change the language of the dictionary on the fly. Even iBooks (which I use in my iPad...yes, I know, but the Note 10.1 is not yet released, so I'm still on iPad) will let you download different dictionaries and look up the meaning in any of them.
But in Play Books, it will always look up in English. No matter what. Now, I haven't tried changing my phone's language because, well, that wouldn't be an option in the long run. So, is there a way to change the dictionary for looking up words? If so, how?
