Where can I find open-source dictionary databases and commercial dictionary databases for any language? Also for more exotic languages such as Korean, Hindi, Marathi etc.

I've found this commercial site where I can purchase dictionary databases, although the price tag is fairly high:

Are there any similar sites, open-source or commercial, where I can get hold of large dictionary databases for any language (also non-European)? Do they exist, for example, for download with Linux-distributions from university databases and similar?
