  • The StarDict code is GNU GPL v3 licensed and Linux ports exist
  • Free StarDict dictionaries are widely available on the Internet and can be easily created from scratch
  • Unlike Kindle, StarDict supports pretty much any language, including Russian, RTL languages and CJK, and Amazon is not likely to implement anything beyond the usual EFIGS support
Alternatively, I'd appreciate pointers on how to create a lookup dictionary feature myself using Python, Perl or other other scripting languages. (Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with C, Linux and the Kindle framework.)
When requesting specific, custom, software you will often get better results if you offer money in exchange for the work.
Most developers respond well to $$$$
