Kindle Vocab Import

<10kB. Updated 2016-12-11. Only supports Anki 2.0.x.
The author has shared 1 other item(s).


This addon implements an anki importer that directly imports the words in kindle database to anki. The imported fields in kindle db now are including: word, stem, usage, create_time, book title, book author. The usage is native so you only need to open the anki import dialog, select the kindle database file, and it would show you the init maps. Then just enjoy it.


As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.

This add-on previously supported Anki 2.0. You can download the last version supporting 2.0 here. As Anki 2.0 has been discontinued, no support is available for this version.

All Anki 2.1.x Add-Ons

Not sure if this works anymore, if it doesn't then go to kindle-flashcards.com to export to a Anki-compatible deck.

The missing chain !

A must-have for any kindle user who work with anki. Too bad my old kindle 3 reader doesn't générate the said file
Perfect for non-native reader wanting to expand their vocabulary

One Click from Kindle Vocab to Anki!

I use kindle for most of my English reading and my vocab backlog is over 2K, but it was just too hard to import those words from kindle to Anki so i've left them on the attic for quite a long time.
Then I found the Kindle Mate application, real helpful too. Still, it's quite laborious to get it done, not to mention the farrago of export errors you may encounter.
And now we have this add-on! Holy Molly I am impressed. By opening the vocab.db in kindle's system files, it can extract 5 fields from the vocab file (word, stem, usage, time read, book name/author). Sad that I can't upload screenshot of this amazing "output". With another addon- Word Query that the same author has written, the whole card-making, definition adding work flow is super consistent and efficient.
Would recommend this to all my friends with kindle and again my sincere thanks to the author.
