    Well...

    Since checking the net has only given me a kanji->en dictionary I thought I'd ask the tempers.

    I'd need stardict compatible dictonary

    (read:

    *.idxc
    *.idx
    *.dict

    files)

    for the following:

    English -> Kanji & Romanji

    Romanji&Kanji -> English

    (If both are available in one dictinary, nice ... if not, I guess standalone dictionaries will do fine aswell).

    I'll use those with a smartphone dictionary app that works with above mentioned files.

    Thanks in advance.

    BTW: I'd be appreciated if said dictionaries would pack some punch (quite some enteries).

    Do you mean that you want a smartphone dictionary that read those files? or do you want a place to find such files? In any case I won't be able to help since all I can do is google it, and you've already done that :P

    Anyway, a tip on spelling: Romaji instead of Romanji :)

    I would highly recommend not using that dictionary. Not only does it have problems recognising stroke order, but it's also very lacking in the number of entries it has meaning that often you won't find the word you're looking for.

    Sadly I'm not familiar with the dictionary format in question, but personally I've been using a mix of JED and Jisho.org for my translating needs when on the go (JED is slightly outdated UI-wise but it's still a really nice application).
