How not to type control ID again in meta:resourcekey?

I've got a page which I need to localize to different langauges. So I used resource files and ended with a lot of controls looking like below. Most of the time, the meta:resourcekey is simply equal to control ID. Typing it twice is getting really annoying. Any way to get rid of this need while still using resource files (changing res files to some other concept would take weeks of work).

<asp:HyperLink ID="linkImportZipFile" NavigateUrl="#extractZIP" onclick="extractOpt(impMethZip);" Text="Import models from ZIP file" runat="server" meta:resourcekey="linkImportZipFile" />
