Hi @CraigDunn and @kjpou1
Just wanted to inform you ,
You can update the Manual of localization :
https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/xamarin-forms/localization/

The guide is only for winphone 8/8.1 SILVERLIGHT .
NOT for WP 8.1 WinRT.
(it's not working for WP8 winrt)
And i understood from you that the main support from you is for WP8 winRT (at least for cocossharp as i understood from @kjpou1

So.
You can add another Section for WP8.1 WinRT for localization Strings according to this guide:
suchan.cz/2013/09/shared-localization-for-windows-phone-8-and-windows-8-apps-using-pcl/

It's a small fix (you have only to add a Strings folder with locale folders under it (as in the guide)
with empty templated .resw files)

AND IT'S WORKING!
I checked it on CocosSharp and assuming it's also for XF.

you even don't need the platform implementation for WinPhone_Locale (for wp8.1 WinRT) ,
because the platform is looking for the current locale and search the folder names to match the locale name.

checked it for strings.
I believe for images is like in the guide (or even without renderer , must check it out)

Check it out.

Regards
