hm, that depends on the level you wanna do it.

some time ago i visited a chinese course at our university and made me an own, simple vocab trainer an dictionary system.

if you want to do it for own purposes in major, you may want to use microsoft access, for instance.
there you have a very simple toolkit to create a surface with forms (using vba), and a data-base included.

chinese characters are normally included in the arial unicode font.
also, i remember, that they are included in minglui or something like that fonts.
you simple need to turn on asian/chinese language support on your machine.

to input the vocabs you may want to activate an IME too.
IMEs are simple input tools for asian text.
they pop up near your input caret and you keyboards input is redirected into another
input line, where the ime detects what asian character you're trying to type and
then inserts it into your normal input box.

you dictionary should be a table in your database, including at least the 3 columns
 english chines pinjin, whereas pinjin is the chines characters "sound name" in english letters (with emphezision marks).
