localization strategy and variables
I have Update 6: 1407.2208
Part of our localization strategy is as follows, a simple version:
Create a course in Storyline with English content English.story
Make a copy of that .story file; English-copy.story and rename it Spanish.story
Export all text, localize to Spanish, import localized text
Now we have two files: English.story with English content, and Spanish.story with Spanish content
Make a copy of English.story; English-copy.story and rename it MultiLanguage.story
Next, copy the scene with the Spanish screens from Spanish.story into MultiLanguage.story
(We need to have multiple languages in one .story file)
Here’s my problem:
When I localize Spanish.story I also rename all the variables so I have Spanish-specific variables; I need each language to have its own set of variables in the multi-language course.
When I copy the scene with my Spanish slides from Spanish.story into MultiLanguage.story, it not only doesn’t copy in the renamed variables, the Spanish slides are using the original English variables.
Why is this happening? How do I get the Spanish variables to come over with it?

English.story is attached.
Thanks for you help,
