    Select a word in for example Safari, tap 'define' and then 'manage'. Then tap the little x next to the dictionary you want to remove.

    There is no 'Manage'.

    When you select a word e.g. on a news page, 2 options show up: "Copy" (left) and "look up" (or something similiar on the right). Choose the option on the right. Then a dictionary shows up and at the bottom left you have the option to "manage".

    Let me know if it works, or just upvote :).

    Thanks for the reply. There is no option at the bottom left to "manage". Is it cause maybe this option wasn't available prior to iOS 7? My phone has iOS 6

    Yep, I think you're right. On iOS6 there only is an English dictionary. I think with iOS7, multiple languages were introduced, hence the manage button. Maybe something can be done jailbroken, but I couldn't say for sure.

    I just used a german keyboard and clicked define and gave me the option to download a dictionary.
