Dictionnary built in ebook

Hi all,
I would appreciate to hear your opinion, solutions, code, etc. for the following problem.
I am working on a multi-lingual interactive ebook. I need to be able to show the equivalent of words in the other language when asked for. For example if the reader hovers or selects the word "live" I should be able to show him its equivalent in French "vivir" by a popup on top of the word.
I am looking for a solution to have these cases handled using a central dictionary and do not piggy bag each word with its equivalent on the text to avoid duplication, size, and the complexity.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Theoretically, it'd be possible to embed dictionaries in epub3 books and query them with JavaScript, however, IMHO, the best solution would be to distribute the dictionary as a separate StarDict dictionary, which most Android epub apps can access via third-party apps, e.g. ColorDict.
