  • Hi ClementM,

    Sorry for a late response, I'm not able to reply you days ago.

    Just test to change my system to Chinese region, I found the name of the app also the description has been changed.

    I think you would be interested with following documentation: Loading strings from the Windows Store app manifest. You could write your Appmanifest like below if you have the language resource:

    <DisplayName>ms-resource:String1</DisplayName>
    
    Besides, see this to know how to add string resource: Quickstart: Using string resources

  • Hi ClementM,

    A question I'm confusing, if I have a jpg file in en-us culture, the file type will changed to another one when I was in a different culture or language?

  • The image file can be localized easily using en-US or fr-CA in my case but all the strings in the AppManifest.xml (the App Name, for instance) doesn't have that counterpart so you have to either make them language independent or choose which description will fit be the best in all language...
