Retrieve the name of an item using the name of the project folder

Hi,

I have several letterings that use "thisComp.name". I need to create a version of these letterings in another language, all in the same file, and I do not want to add too many layers in the timeline to avoid problems. I'm thinking of duplicating the comps in the project in a specific folder, retyping their names in the other language and creating a checkbox that alternates between the two sources.

Is there any way to direct the "thisComp.name;" to a specific folder in the project?

Thanks.

Not that I know of.
