You have to use a resource file.
First of all, you can load the resource editor in VB6 with the menu Addin->Addin Manager.
Then, you have to create a resource file and write there the strings.

Each string shall have a different identifier, that you will use to load the string like this:

label1.Caption = LoadResString( 123 )

You can have different languages in the resource file, and VB will load the correct language depending on the OS you are running on.
Hope this helps you.
Marco.
