Can I re-map an AC boolean to yes/no in IFC?

I'm creating a template for IFC-export to one of our large scandinavian contractors and I got stuck on Position which in AC is Interior or Exterior. The contractor wants a boolean "is external" - yes/no instead of writing it out in plain text. Is it possible do you think? I'm creating the template in version 21.

I've just tried to open an IFC exported from Archicad in Simplebim and its "Building Element is External" parameter seems to be working as it should.
The same goes also for Solibri, where the Parameter seems to be called "Building Envelope".

If you don't have the same results, you might want to check your IFC Translator. Or make sure that your Property Mapping is set to "Standard IFC2x3 Scheme".
Hmmm...I need to test a bit more. The Summary folder (BIMCollab) gives me True/False on position...same as SimlpeBIM. I'd like yes/no.
