Forcing a variable to evaluate as an object reference

I have the strange feeling I really should know the answer to this, but
my mind is blank.
I have written a routine for switching languages of the text contained
in a number of fields (listed in field "langfields"). The fields are on
various cards, and are listed in "langfields" in the form:
"Inst3" of card "Ranking" of this Stack
The different language texts are stored in a custom property set
'Language' in each of the respective objects.
When the script runs, the text is retrieved from the custom property
set glanguage, but the "put it into field i" generates a 'no such
object' error. I have tried different forms of syntax, brackets and
whatnot, but either get the no object error, or the text is put into
the variable 'i' rather than into the relevant 'field i'. I
originally tried doing the get and put into the field in one line, but
broke it in to steps to see where it was failing.
put "changing it now"
repeat for each line i in field "langfields"
put "field " & i into twhere
get the Language[glanguage] of twhere
put it into field i
