I think the easiest way is to define a local macro with the desired
non-English character and then call it when you are labeling the variable.
For instance to display "year" written in Spanish:

local enie=char(241)
label variable fecha "A`enie'o"

I use -asciiplot- to map the ascii code characters (you can install it from
SSC).

For more details check these great references:

Best,

Marcelo
