The compiled dictionary format is completely different than Ispell’s. Furthermore the format of the language data files’ are different than Ispell’s affix file. However, all known Ispell dictionaries were converted to Aspell format, except for Albanian (sq) as I was unable to find the source word list.

The naming and format of the personal dictionary is also different. However, Ispell personal dictionaries can be imported using the aspell-import script. See section Using aspell-import. The Ispell personal dictionary is simply a list of words while the Aspell one is a list of words with a header line. Thus it is also fairly easy to convert between the two. See Format of the Personal Dictionary.
