Just for curiosity's sake, I've been wondering what languages out there people have been having trouble finding reliable online dictionaries for. I've lucked out in that Japanese has several amazing resources (thanks in large part to Jim Breen's EDICT project), and I've found some good resources for Korean if you feel comfortable navigating a site in the target language, but I've had less luck with finding good resources for German, Spanish, and Russian (though this has proven adequate for Russian for the most part).

Are there any languages out there that you find particularly difficult to find resources for? What are some of the best online resources you've found for the languages you use most frequently?
