How to activate localization in store app


  • Hi

    I have written a small winrt app, to be published in the window store.

    My language is Swedish but I also would like people understanding english to be able to use my app.

    - default language in the manifest file is en-US.

    - I have created two resource files in a directory structure like this:



    So,,, I hade expected that if I run my application in VS2013 debugger on a computer with windows 8.1 installed and prefered language set to Swedish,,,, I would see Swedish strings in the application.

    In a simular way,,, if I change preferred language in my computer to English,, and run my application in the same way,, I would like to see English strings in my application.


    My problem is that English strings are always used. I have found no way to start my application to show Swedish strings.

    Any advice??? (this i the last step before publishing my app).
