Accessibility language on Xamarin

When content is written in multiple languages, foreign words should ideally be indicated in their respective language. For example, you can indicate a French quote in a Dutch piece of content. This enables assistive technologies to use the right pronunciation.

Unfortunately, Xamarin Forms does not have support for changing the accessibility language. When you use HTML such as <span lang="nl">Appt</span> inside a Label, the lang attribute is not used. You can create a component with a custom renderer with native Android and iOS logic. If you have done this, please contribute code.
