String resources and localization

Localization is done through the resw files in the current project. Normally you would put these files in the strings/[lang] folder in the [AppName] project. Resources are then referenced using x:Uid.

See the UWP documentation on localizing strings in your UI.

Resources may be placed in the default scope files Resources.resw, or in a custom named file. Custom named file content can be used with the x:Uid="/myResources/MyResource" format, see how to factor strings into multiple resource files.

Note that the default language can be defined using the DefaultLanguage msbuild property, using an IETF Language Tag (e.g. en or fr-FR).
