Hello, I would like to have as primary dictionary a dictionary Norwegian-English. Does anyone know if that is available somewhere ?

one problem you'll face is that on some kindles you have to set a default dictionary is the languages supported by the kindle (English, Spanish, Italian, French, German and in some cases Chinese, Japanese and Portuguese) and there is no option to set a default Norwegian dictionary.

the other problem you'll face is that most dictionaries in languages other than those listed above are, for some strange reason, encoded as being in English; This would allow you to set either a Norwegian-English and an English-Norwegian as a default English dictionary, but if a book is encoded as being in Norwegian it would give you a no dictionary found message since there isn't and currently can't be a default Norwegian dictionary. In other words: metadata language of dictionary must match metadata language of book.

and I can't find one in kindle format, but I can find:

Slovoed Compact Swedish-Norwegian dictionary (Slovoed dictionaries)
Norwegian-Russian Dictionary

however, I'm looking through a filter of my country being set to France

what you might do is contact the publishers of these and request a digital version (this way they'd know there's a need)

Norwegian-English Dictionary: A Pronouncing and Translating Dictionary of Modern Norwegian (Bokmål and Nynorsk) with a Historical and Grammatical Introduction
Norwegian Practical Dictionary: Norwegian-English / English-Norwegian (Hippocrene Practical Dictionaries) (Norwegian Edition) (Hippocrene Practical Dictionaries (Hippocrene))
