Multilingual external choice lists

I am utilizing an external choice list in my form and have a Spanish column included in the external table. I am managing the choice list with a search() appearance.

However, I am not able to get the form to utilize the Spanish column of my external table. My current setup will return the choices from Column D of my external table. If I put "Area_Spanish" in the label column of my choices tab in the Survey123 Excel workbook, I get the Spanish options.


Is it possible to have Survey123 automatically switch between the English options and the Spanish options in the same way it does with an internal list?
