When you say at runtime is that when the program starts or on the fly as a new user sits down without restarting?

The best idea I can think of would be to have a database or file with the headers listed in all 3 languages.  The user could select from a menu the desired language.  You could read the file once (if it is small) or each time the language changes resetting the labels as you go.

Another idea would be to have the fields already in place and hide/unhide the appropriate labels
