This is free, it is a Latvian-Livonian-English phrasebook.

And this is a dictionary (also with English).

As for other resources there is the nice "parlons live" from the French publisher Harmattan and a "Livonian" book by Lincom Europa.

I believe there is probably more out there, especially on Latvian base, or maybe even in Estonian or in Russian.

Edit:
There is another topic with several resources about Livonian here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=13644&hilit=livonian

You're welcome. :)

Don't worry. I remembered there was such topic, and it took me a good while anyway to locate it.
