    QOTW: App displayed with Localized language support on WP Marketplace

    Hey ALL,

    I have a fun question for you to think and ponder of (i'll post the answer in a couple of days if no one answers)

    What is the only way to have your app displayed as supporting X,Y,Z, etc languages in the marketplace (i.e. what you have to do with the WP project) ?

    Well... not alot of jumpers on the question so i'll step in.

    Paulo hint is in place but not very user friendly (i'll explain)

    basically the option to appear localized to X language on the WP marketplace depends on if one of your projects in the solution has a SupportedCultures tag in the project (.csproj) file
    HOWEVER (and to me this is a big however) it is not very user friendly to edit that file (and to know the exact format of what you need to add) and since you cannot access that property via any user interface in VS the best suggestion from me to you is to add a .resx file to the project with the following name format <internal_name>.<2 letter language code>.resx
    Even if you have a 3rd party solution to support internally different languages and dont necessarily user the Strings inside the resx files.

    Thus the "Hint".

    This has been made easier in Visual Studio 2012:
