    Region settings does not work on emulator, e.g. language=en-US, regional format=fi formats currency, numbers etc. to en-US. Really disappointing, hopefully works on device.
    Use Case: chinese student wants to practice english terms and sets phone to en-(whatever region), but still wants to see numbers, currency in local format.
    Otherwise globalization acts much better than earlier.

    correction: phone language=en-(x), region format is chinese for previous use case.

  • Multilingual Toolkit is hard to use when it comes to Universal App. Resources and translations would be nice to have in Shared part.
