summary We have been exploiting the capabilities of multimedia tools to combine visual and audio images to create a multilingual reference tool for architecture students. 0ur students work in both Cantonese and English, learning incomplete architectural vocabularies in both languages. We set out to create a tool which can be used by studentís as a reference tool as well as a teaching tool. In response to this need, we have created a multimedia lexicon using three-dimensional models of buildings with which the user can interact, identify elements and hear and see the correct term for the elements identified in the language of their choice. The system can handle any number of language combinations or building models. This paper describes a system currently under development which has gone through two iterations to explore the issues involved.
