Spanish language AE project – Only some comps are translating

I know this is a familiar issue, but there's a twist: A client has requested an After Effects project that was started in a Spanish-speaking country.  The project has approximately 100 pre-comps, each of which contains dozens of layers, and just handful of them still have commands in Spanish.

 

I deleted the application and reinstalled.  I checked the application.xml and made sure it said, 

<Data key="installedLanguages">en_US</Data> 

Nothing seems to work.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much in advance for your help!!

Shape layers have a gigazillion invisible property streams pre-registered that only come into view when AE needs them. It's the old nonsense of AE being unable to dynamically add property streams at runtime. Your Spanish names are exactly that - AE would store the UI string for such a shim property stream since there isn't a generalized matching name for it. It's treated as if you explicitly (re-)named it and thus will be persistent across different languages. You have to rename them individually or use a script for it. Something like this can perhaps help:
