How to change the title of Timepicker and localization in custom renderer

I have Xamarin forms time picker following custom renderer for IOS

    [assembly: ExportRenderer(typeof(TimePicker), typeof(Time24PickerRenderer))]
    namespace LabOraTimeStamp.iOS.Renderers
        public class Time24PickerRenderer:TimePickerRenderer
            protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<TimePicker> e)
                var timePicker = (UIDatePicker)Control.InputView;
                timePicker.Locale = new NSLocale("no_nb");

                //Get the Done button
                var toolbar = (UIToolbar)Control.InputAccessoryView;
                var doneBtn = toolbar.Items[1];

                //Set the Done to OK
                doneBtn.Title = "OK";

I wanted to change the default "done" to "Ok".

1) How can I do that? the line mentioned above for setting the title does not affect anything.

2) I already implemented localization for xamarin forms.I just wanted to use existing Resx values from custom renderer to show the string for appropriate culture.How can I achieve that?

    @Mabrouk Thank you .It does the work.The "Title" property does nothing while the UIBarButtonItem style is applied. As per your answer we add our own "OK" style to UIBarButtonItem.
