Adding more language packs to the dictionary

Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone knows how to add more languages to the Dictionary application.

I was specifically looking for a Portuguese language pack, but after searching in Apple's website I only managed to find one (yes, one) language pack for that application; isn't that odd? I use the Dictionary application quite a lot for English words, too bad i can't do it for my native language.

Anyway, cheers and thanks in advance
