I didn't test this approach myself but a possible solution to your 
problem is to run a dictd server on your device. Here are a few pointers:

Convert Wikipedia SQL dumps to the dictd database format

Dictd for maemo (server)

Maemo dict (client application)

If the fact of having to be online is not a problem for you, you can 
find a list of public servers which provide Wikipedia databases here :

All this may be overkill compared to Paul's solution though.
