Localization on Xamarin
Assistive technologies, such as the screen reader, use the locale for the pronunciation of utterances. It is important to explictly set a locale for your app. An incorrect locale leads to unclear pronunciation. Also, setting a locale can help with displaying characters correctly.
With Xamarin, you can use
CultureInfo to set a language. For more information, see String and Image localization in Xamarin Forms.
