Localising Windows Phone App Title

blog this

A key exercise in app store optimisation (ASO) is to ensure that your app title is in the language searched for
by your user. Therefore, my app “Free SMS”, should be written “Бесплатные СМС” in Russian.

This tool makes it really easy to do so. (http://engine-designs.com/2011/08/17/wp7-appreslib-dll-generator/)
Following the instructions are easy, but the steps are as follows:
1. Modify Sample.xml to your app name, translated into all supported languages:
– example:
<Language Name="French" LocaleID="040c“>
Mon App
Mon Tile

2. Run WPAppResLib.exe Sample.exe, and a folder will be generated with a dll and mui files. Copy all these files into your project root, and in Visual Studio, select View all files (refresh), Include in project, and change the build action to content.

3. Test it by switching the language to French on the emulator, and the app title should change.

    Set the Tile Title to the following:

    And select the languages in WMAppManifest.xml
