Nice to know! how do I activate the Spanish dictionary if I am reading a book in Spanish?

You mean to be able to highlight a word, and have it translate to another language? I don't think so.

If the book is properly encoded as Spanish, and you have the Spanish dictionary downloaded, it should work just fine.
