Localization in Xamarin projects


We are going to implement the Localization concept for our project . To accomplish this, We are following the below Url which contains the android
native way using strings.xml

ref : developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/application_fundamentals/resources_in_android/part_5_-_application_localization_and_string_resources/

and .net way that is using resx files following the below link

Ref : codeproject.com/Articles/578158/GeneratingplusLocalizedplusResourcesplusinplusMono

Kindly suggest on which is the best way to follow for implementing Localization in Xamarin.

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for your kind reply. The above said links are discussed with Xamarin.Forms. But i need a example in Xamarin for Android,iOS and Windows Phone with Vernacular. Kindly provide me an example for this.

    As suggested, whether Vernacular support would be avialable in the future if i implement in our project ( our project is a product for long term run ).

    Thanks in Advance.

    I don't work for Rdio (the maintainer of Vernacular), so I can't speak to this long-term. If there are using it in their apps, I would expect it to be continued to maintained.

    There isn't tons of documentation on Vernacular; the best resource I've found is @abock's talk from MonkeySpace.
