Language Support

Bing

The Bing Maps SDK for Windows Store apps provides the ability to display a localized map, as well as return localized search and route results.

Setting the Culture

By default the map labels and the navigation control text are provided in the culture English-United States (en-US). However, the map control culture can be changed by setting the Culture property of the Map object, as in the following example, which shows how to set the culture to French (fr-FR) using XAML and then C#.
