I made this huge project that will  be constantly updated from someone else and for that i used expressions for most of the texts and elements, so this person could just fill in the variables with the question topic. But here my troubles starts, when this person opened the project, all the expression had errors, after a close analysis I noticed that the after effects had trouble to understand terms such as "slider" "color" "checkbox" all of the expression control effects. 

This person uses After effects with  Portuguese-PTBR interface, wich fails to recognize even the simples of expressions that uses expression controls, Both after effects (mine and his) are uptaded to the last version with the only difference that mine uses the english UI,  I then reistalled after effects with english UI and without any changes in the project all the expression  worked properly. 

 

I think the devs teamm should check this out, that's why im posting with here

Make sure that your expressions use match names to refer to the controls. So instead of this, for example:

 

thisComp.layer("Layer 1").effect("Slider Control")("Slider")

 

you'd do this:

 

thisComp.layer("Layer 1").effect("ADBE Slider Control")("ADBE Slider Control-0001")
