Yes, the properties are shared.

For language learning, I use multi-cloze cards with
"hide1_firstmore". So:

It: [Ciao]
En: [Hello/Goodbye]

So you learn in both directions, but see the foreign language phrase
more often (assuming you are not Italian, of course).

My experience is you are better of making your own vocabulary -- since
you need to use org-drill learning to reinforce other forms of learning,
and you spend more time learning the vocab than you will writing it. The
only bits that I automate are the verb tables.
