Using custom label and their translated capabilities to populated field.helpText?

Hello everyone,
I have created a custom label named 'fieldNameHelp' for each of my SFDC custom field. These custom labels are translated and used in VF pages.  I would like to re-use these custom labels to populate the standard HelpText of each field, so that the same help message can be displayed in the standard SFDC user interface.
Option1: direct insert of '$Label.OrgNameRegisteredHelp' in the field HelpText input field does not work. Any workaround?
Option2: The .stf files contains both the field HelpText and the custom label translated value. Example below of the .stf file in en_US
Language code: en_US
Type: Source
# KEY     LABEL
...
CustomField.Organization__c.NameRegistered.HelpText       OrgNameRegistered
...

CustomLabel.OrgNameRegisteredHelp           The fiscal name used for invoices, fiscal documents. Includes llc, corp, sarl, ...
...
Has anyone has an idea of how I can replace OrgNameRegistered with 'The fiscal name used for invoices, fiscal documents. Includes llc, corp, sarl, ...'
I don’t think that Excel or XML editors can cut it. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Jerome
