Windows Phone .NET localization that works

I was quite eager to learn about Windows Phone 7 when the development preview came out. I downloaded the tools and tried to build a sample to get a feel. I must admit that developing .NET application for the new OS is quite easy. However one bit I couldn't make work - localization. With today's global markets and multi-language consumers it is important to be able to deliver your product in different languages. I suspect there was a bug in the version of software I was dealing with then. Now I have downloaded the latest release and followed this blog entry and it actually worked. This is good news, hope you enjoy it as well.

NB: it is worth noting, that this technique will work for any WPF or Silverlight application, not just a Windows Phone one.
