I wondered if it is possible to change the UI language of a running WP(8) XAML app dynamically.
The scenario I have on my mind is an app that is localized in some languages, say English, German and French. English is the Default language. Now say you have an user in Africa. As English is not the first foreign language everywhere in the world my user might want to switch the UI language to French. Can this be done?
I searched on the web and found the following resources:
- [http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/wpapp...ample-a2237b7a The MSDN Globalization Sample]
- [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6...during-runtime SO: How to change windows phone APP language during runtime?]
I tried to change the MSDN sample with code to chnage the UI but wasn't successful. Even if I save the language selection in iso store and set the thread UI culture on app start to the selected language the UI is not switched.
