Example of "bad" solution explorer (UI language German)
The Asset Catalog entry is not displayed in the Solution Explorer when the Visual Studio UI is set to a language other than English
## Partial temporary workaround: switch the VS UI language to English
1. Install the English language pack from the VS downloads page:
2. Locate the International Settings section in the Visual Studio options.
German: Debuggen -> Optionen -> Umgebung -> Internationale Einstellungen
French: Outils -> Options -> Environnement -> Paramètres internationaux
English: Tools -> Options -> Environment -> International Settings
3. Set the Language to "English" and then restart Visual Studio.
## Regression status: not an immediate regression

### BAD: Cycle 6, iOS 9.2
BAD: XamarinVS 188.8.131.527 (1390b70) + VS 2013 Update 5 + UI language German
BAD: XamarinVS 184.108.40.2067 (1390b70) + VS 2015 Update 1 + UI language German
BAD: XamarinVS 220.127.116.117 (1390b70) + VS 2015 Update 1 + UI language French
## Steps to replicate
1. Run Visual Studio with the UI language set to a non-English option. (See the "workaround" section above, but adjust the instructions to switch _away_ from English.)
2. Create a new "Visual C# -> iOS -> iPhone -> Single View App (iPhone)" app. (Or open an existing iOS app, optionally one that already includes an Asset Catalog.)
3. Look for the Asset Catalog in the Solution Explorer.
The Asset Catalog icon is missing from the Solution Explorer.
There does not seem to be any alternate way to access the graphical asset catalog editor.
