    Nothing to help with. You need to show us your markup pertaining to the Label throwing the error.

    [ContentProperty("Text")] public class TranslateExtension : IMarkupExtension { const string ResourceId = "xxx.Resources.AppResources"; static readonly Lazy resmgr = new Lazy(() => new ResourceManager(ResourceId, typeof(TranslateExtension).GetTypeInfo().Assembly)); public string Text = "";

        public object ProvideValue(IServiceProvider serviceProvider)
            if (Text == "")
                return "";
            var ci = CrossMultilingual.Current.CurrentCultureInfo;
            var translation = resmgr.Value.GetString(Text, ci);
            if (translation == null)

    if DEBUG

                throw new ArgumentException(
                    String.Format("Key '{0}' was not found in resources '{1}' for culture '{2}'.", Text, ResourceId, ci.Name),


                translation = Text; // returns the key, which GETS DISPLAYED TO THE USER


            return translation;

    Please edit your post and fix the markdown around the code so the site parser doesn't eat it. Its impossible to follow the way it is. https://redpillxamarin.com/2016/12/13/faq-frequently-asked-questions/

    You named your property Text? That's a really bad choice in names because its already a keyword. That would be like naming a property Page or int or Label

    Go back and apply to good naming conventions to your code and see if that UNconfuses the compiler. Its probably getting lost in which Text you're referring to.

    Please also fix your second post - I'm sure you can see how bad the formatting of the code is.
