I know there is many ways to do this in runtime (in my case, in my
framework I have TBaseForm which has virtual method TranslateControls,
descendant forms override it and do translation on local controls) but
referring to the idea of RAD, in future it could be works in few
simple "click" steps:
1. Drop TLabel on form
2. Go to object inspector, execute Caption editor
3. If you don't want translation then write raw text otherwise choise
ID (some listbox) from associated translation file
4. Click OK

That exactly Eclipse works. It would be nice to see it future in Lazarus
