troubleshooting Question

Is there a property that could be used as a second tag, or a property that could hold a second caption?

Hi Experts,
I have some forms in a database that occassionally (depending on who walks up to the workstation) needs to display text in SPANISH or ENGLISH.    I have done this in the past by just hard coding the two versions of the text using VBA and changing the CAPTION of the BUTTON or LABEL via that code.  

I'd like to figure out two properties on a CONTROL (button or label), to hold the ENGLISH and SPANISH versions of text, then use the TAG property to decide which CONTROLS get toggled back and forth.

My thinking is that if I can streamline the way I do this, it will be lots easier to add the "BI-lingual" feature to new forms, and easier to enter/edit the SPANISH version without having to dig around in the VBA.  

Any ideas?
