    I'm developing a Windows Phone 8 application that supports english and norwegian and I am using the Multilingual App toolkit from MSDN ( I've also created these resource labels  but still I only get English language for hours, minutes, seconds, ok button and cancel button. 

    The DatePicker i'm using in the same app  does show correct language, but the Ok and Cancel button is displayed in english.

    How can I get the missing translations corrected?

    Hi Alexander,

    Thank you for your question.

    As explained here, one way to provide the localization strings for our controls is to use localization managers. This means that in order to actually use the localized strings that you provided, you need to set the localization manager for the Input assembly (where RadTimeSpanPicker resides) and use the resource manager that contains your localized strings. Here's the example, if you added the strings to the default resource file AppResources:

    InputLocalizationManager.Instance.ResourceManager = AppResources.ResourceManager;
    Let me know if you need further assistance.
