For those of you who might have ELLs in your class, or maybe you’re simply studying another language for your own pleasure, you might have found yourself in the situation where you don’t want to have the Kindle in one hand, and your smartphone dictionary app open in another.
On an Amazon Kindle Fire, the browser available for internet use is called Silk Browser. Clearing your history can help you if you need to hide a website from your search bar or if your device is used by multiple people. To export your book file as an ePub file, select 'Share' on the Apple Pages menu bar, then 'Export.' Select 'ePub' as the desired format. Create Kindle-ready. The leftmost, a single rectangle, selects the single-page view. In the middle, the divided rectangle, selects a two-column (two-“page”) view. The rightmost, a rectangle with dotted dividers, is a multi-column view that will create as many columns as will fit in the window.
Many people don’t know that Kindle actually introduced a translate feature right into the device. In fact, at the moment it can translate into 16 different languages: Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
Japanese happens to be my language of choice, so I’m going to use that as an example.
Let’s take a look:
1) Open your book. I’ve chosen Flatland, but the nerdiness of your choice is completely up to you:
2) Highlight your text or word. Simply touch the word you want, or touch and drag your finger across the phrase that you’re looking to translate.
Then, tap on the “More…” option.
3) Choose “Translation” from the menu that pops up.
By default it will go to English:English. After you’ve chosen the language that you want, it will set that as its default choice.
4) Tap on the “To: English” Box
There’s your list of languages. As mentioned before, my choice is Japanese, so…
5) Slide your finger up and down the screen to see your options. Tap on Japanese (or the language you or your student wants)
6) View the translation!
Here I chose the text “Imagine a vast sheet of paper” and it translated it to ”紙の広大なシートを想像します。” Which, minus the imperative form is actually pretty spot on.
Give it a try and let me know if you get any interesting returns.
NOTES to be aware of:
1) While the value of direct translation is fairly low, and the technique as pedagogy is frowned upon, I think looking up the occasional word while trying to read a book in English is something to be encouraged.
2) The translation works through an online service, so if you’re using a wifi only kindle and are not in a hotspot, the translation won’t work
Amazon has got a pretty thorough ecosystem for Kindle, especially in eBook buying, managing, publishing and reading. So why should we back up Kindle books?
Believe it or not, your Kindle books are not really owned by you, Amazon would permanently delete your books from your Kindle library without saying a word. For example, your account got hacked , and Amazon decided to unilaterally close it, and you would lost all your purchased books.
So my advice is that do not trust any of the ebook sellers. Please remember, you don't really own the eBook even if you buy it, you just have the rights to read it. This is really nonsense, right?
Fortunately, this article offers you two ways to back up your Kindle books in a place away from the Amazon Kindle, and truely own them. One is from Kindle for PC or Mac App, another is from your Kindle eReaders, such as Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Voyage.

The Restriction to Backup Your Kindle Books
The only restriction to backup Kindle Books is Digital Rights Management (DRM). Why should we remove Kindle DRM to back up the books? Can we just copy the downloaded .azw files into a new folder directly?
No, we can't. In fact, if Amazon wipes a book from your Kindle library, you are not allowed to read it even you have the .azw file because Amazon tells the content server that you are not the owner of the book any more. And the connection between you and content server is the DRM. That's why you need to remove DRM to back up Kindle books.
