Proficiency in foreign languages is essential for professionals from countries in transition. A multimedia dictionary Internet application may offer needed help in everyday activities as well as in distance-learning systems. A multimedia dictionary is considered as both a conventional dictionary tool and a distance-learning network application. We analyze the architecture and implementation issues arising in the design and implementation of a multimedia dictionary network application. The application is considered multimedia since it is designed to support textual, visual, and audio information content. Practical implementation is shown to be feasible with current technology, but a lack of available multimedia standards has been recognized. This is why we have considered the existing standards as well as the standards in development. The application is developed in Java language, and may be run as either a standalone application or an applet. The latter entails accessibility in a ubiquitous manner to a large number of users. The application is intended for both non-native English users and professionals exposed to specific technical terminology
