Translating project into both US and UK Eng in Studio 2014

I recently did a translation project from French into both UK and US English (I didn't create the project myself, but it was sent to me by a project manager based in France). I received the package with both files and did the UK one first and saved it and updated the translation memory. When I opened the US file, none of the UK translations had auto-propagated into my US document. Perhaps the UK file was connected to a UK TM and the US one to a US TM, so my UK translations would therefore not help me with US.
So next I tried making a new copy of the completed UK xliff file and then changing the target language to US, figuring this way I could go through and use spellcheck to find the spelling differences. But I couldn't find a way to change the target language of the file.
The project was simply a list of keywords, and I ended up just entering them in all over again in the US file since they were fresh in my mind and it wasn't too onerous. But in the future I'd like to find a better way of dealing with this issue when it comes up. Does anyone have any easy solutions? Apologies if this issue has been dealt with before, but I did a search and didn't come up with any answers.
