I always figured these characters had implants installed in their brain that made languages easier to learn.

As for why you understand Rakata, Esh-Ka, among other languages. The Rakata did briefly enter the known galaxy between the two KOTOR games, only to die out. If the Republic understood that they, "made claims" to have invented the hyperdrive and once ruled the galaxy, I think the Republic (and by extension, the Empire) would know their language at least to a certain degree.

Esh-Ka I got no explanation for.

Same with Mass Effect: how is it they have the technology to instantly translate alien languages to human language for Commander Shepherd to understand while keeping it matching the lip flaps and not even making a single mistake with the syntax and grammar despite giving no time to hear the speech before translating it?

Sometimes you need to let things go.
