The objective is to use audiofiles as tools to learn a
foreign language.

SYLT/USLT tags in multiple languages,) preferably on
the linux platform, if possible?

Visiting the KDE bug reporting site, it appears that
developers are considering SYLT and USLT support in
Linux taglib:


And eventually, the popular KDE audio player, Amarok,
would support SYLT/USLT:
