Screenshot showing the MORE and CANCEL items
The "MORE" and "CANCEL" context menu items in a ListView's context menu are not localized.
They always appear in English and don't honour the underlying OS's language.
This was tested under iOS.
Please either take the underlying OS's text strings or expose these strings as properties, so they can be localized by the app.
Screenshot is attached.
Thank you for taking the time to submit the bug. We tried to reproduce the issue you reported but were unable given the description. If you could please attach a reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Forms project and adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue we would very much appreciate it.

Demo project to reproduce the bug
Please change your simulator's locale to a non-English language to reproduce the bug.
Confirmed on iOS set to German; 'More' and 'Cancel' are not localized.
Should be fixed in 2.2.0-pre1
I have checked this issue with xamarin.forms 2.2.0-pre1 and I am still facing same issue.
Hence reopening this issue.
Please follow the screencast and let me know if I have missed anything.
@Parmendra: Thanks for testing.
You followed the steps to reproduce the issue exactly, so the bug seems to be still there.
Instead of a "Should be fixed" note, a more detailed description of HOW it was fixed would be helpful. Meaning: The localization is done automatically, OR the developer has now additional properties which he/she must localize manually.

The localization should be handled automatically; you shouldn't have to do anything in order to see the localized button labels. Unfortunately, while the problem is fixed in code, we now have a deployment issue with the localized string assemblies and NuGet. We're working to address that now.
@hartez Has there been any change on the assembly issue since April?
Yes, this was fixed back in April: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/74
Bad bookkeeping on my part.
I have checked this issue with Xmarin.Forms 188.8.131.52 and its working fine. This issue has been fixed.
Hence marked this issue as Verified Fixed.
