To localize the Title of a Windows Phone 7 Application a C++ Resource Dll is needed.
As the Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools do not support C++ Development I created this tool to localize the App Title without the need to have any Visual Studio C++ Version installed.
It uses Bing to translate the english text to Brazilian Portuguese (Brazil), Chinese Simplified (PRC), Chinese Traditional (Taiwan), Czech (Czech Republic), Danish (Denmark), Dutch (Netherlands), English (United States), English (United Kingdom), Finnish (Finland), French (France), German (Germany), Greek (Greece), Hungarian (Hungary), Italian (Italy), Japanese (Japan), Korean (Korea), Norwegian (Norway), Polish (Poland), Portuguese (Portugal), Russian (Russia), Spanish (Spain) and Swedish (Sweden). The english text is used for the EN-US, EN-UK and neutral DLLs, but it is possible to edit the EN-UK Text befor saving the DLLs.
The Portuguese text is also used for the Brazilian-Portuguese Text, but it is possible to edit the Brazilian-Portuguese befor saving the DLLs.
