resource only DLL containing dialogs and strings only

How to create a resource only DLL containing dialogs and strings only for a Windows application? I am creating a multi-language app and able to switch resource dll using AfxSetResourceHandle() function. However the resource dll following MSDN's instruction includes bitmaps, icons etc which make the each language's DLL size unnecessary large.
