Improve shared projects support

I have this setup:

- MyProject (UWP)
- MyCompany.Mobile (Shared project)
- MyCompany.Mobile.Windows (Shared project)

Each project contains a Strings\[Culture] directory that adds the resources for that specific project, but unfortunately MAT only seems to pick up the Strings directory in the UWP app project (not the shared project ones).

This make working with shared projects very hard, please add solid support for shared projects.

Happy to provide more info if needed.

        I know this has been fixed for a few months now. Is there any ETA when this fix will be released to public?

        Pfew, I can reproduce :-) How can I get this file to you?

        All shared projects are referenced by the main project, can you please re-open this ticket?

        I just created a solution with UWP and a single shared project and was able to Enable MAT and added XLF based language for both projects.

        Note: MAT will ignore shared projects that are not referenced by the main project. Once the shared project is referenced, you should be able to Enable and "Add translation languages" to the shared project.

        Thank you,
        Cameron
