    Question Localized ReverseGeocodeQuery

    How to get a localized text from ReverseGeocodeQuery? i.e. street names in Russia should be Cyrillic.
    I already asked in Microsoft forums (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/For...-5556c4cdd196/). They sent me here.

    I did go through the API quite a much, and did not notice any language settings from it, thus it might be indeed missing from the API.

    Great, one more API that can't be used
    First Microsoft delays SDK, then it releases API that is not usable

    A thing which is unclear to me: what do you get as a result now?

    I know that this is probably not the ideal solution, but have you considered using Bing translation service for this?

    http://api.microsofttranslator.com/V2/Soap.svc

    This would require the user to be Online and of course it could happen that the translation may not be 100% accurate, but I don't see any other way to do it as things are right now.

    Basically I know this is not the ideal solution, but if this is of key importance for your scenario, then its something to consider. Either that you are stuck. As far as I know the platform does not support that scenario.

    Have you tried on device/emulator with Russian locale too? I am really just asking, so I have no solution in mind, neither experience with the API.
    Just for most people, Cyrillic text is only a little bit more readable than "really" eastern scripts, so standard transliterations to latin representation have their use (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanization_of_Russian) similarly to many other, like Pinyin for Chinese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinyin)

    Transliteration is a good idea. Will have to try it. Still google has this already. I thought Nokia maps are better.
