How to translate RecordType's Description?

Hi,

My application is being used by different countries (i.e. translations are being used).

When a new Person Account is created, the list of different record types is shown as first step, but we cannot find a way to translate the Description field of the record type (but the record type Label is translated anyway).

Is it possible to translate the Description of the record type?

IF NOT

Is it possiblt to reference a custom label in the translation? Say for example: Description = {!$Lable.MY_CUSTOM_LABEL}

Thanks,
Omar

With Current Salesforce Admin Functionality as far as knowledge with me you can't Translate the Description of the Record type,What you could do is if they are  just like one or 3 countries & if it highly essential to translate , you could clone the Existing record type & change the Description then assign it to Appropriate Profile.
