Accessing Foreign Language Material such as Bilingual Dictionaries Question

I studied Italian, German and Indonesian at high school and university, and Japanese at university. I never had independent access to the good quality, comprehensive bilingual dictionaries (eg Italian-English/English-Italian, German-English/English-German) which my sighted peers were accessing in print. I had to rely on them to read material from these dictionaries to me. I have been battling for years to get publishers of this material to at least make it available in accessible electronic formats, so they can be read with a Braille display; but I’m wondering if anyone has used any OCR packages for accessing such material? To my knowledge, none of the OCR solutions so far have had effective automatic language switching and detection?
