Description Fredy Wenger 2014-08-26 03:35:13 UTC
If a Picker is used on a iOS-Device (iPhone, iPad) the text to select an entry ("Done") is showed only in english although the device is setted to another language (German).
In Android an WP the setted laguage is showed correct (eg. in Android there is displaye "Abbrechen" and "OK").

Set the following keys in Info.plist: 

* Localizations
* Localization native development region

The xml looks like this:


The `Picker` on iOS then displays **Fertig** in German language (screenshot attached).

German language : Picker shows **Fertig**

Setting Info.plist as shown causes iOS to correctly translate the 'built-in' strings.
