I have a default website in Magento and only one store, but I had to create a new store view, which will share everything, except layout that will be different, it's just to publicize another brand of same company. I duplicated the template, layout and skin folders in order to work around the newest store view, but some words I translated before are being shown different, e.g below:
In default store view, I changed "Regular Price" to "was" and "Special Price" to "now", so, on the product page we can see "was $99 now $79". However, after creating a new store view in admin, I'm seing the old default text "Regular Price: $99 Special Price: $79" instead of "was $99 now $79".
How to use exactly the same locale for multiple store views? The locale (translation) needs always to be the same doesn't matter the store view.
