how to localize listInstance title in sandboxed solution?

It is posible to add Resources.resx file to feature and localize ListDefinition:

<ListTemplate
        Name="TagsListDefinition"
        Type="20020"
        BaseType="0"
        OnQuickLaunch="TRUE"
        SecurityBits="11"
        Sequence="410"
        DisplayName="$Resources:TagsListDefinitionDisplayName"
        Description="$Resources:TagsListDefinitionDescription"
        Category="Communications"
        Image="/_layouts/images/itgen.png"/>

But this don't work for ListInstance

<ListInstance Title="$Resources:TagsListInstanceTitle"
                OnQuickLaunch="TRUE"
                TemplateType="20020"
                Url="Lists/Tags"
                Description="descr" />

Make sure your format to pick the name from the Resource file is:

Name="$Resources:MyResources,TagsListInstanceTitle"
MyResources – name of the resources file (as described below)
TagsListInstanceTitle – the resource entry

And the name of Resources file (for the entry above) for English should be:

MyResources.en-US.resx

And deployed to:

{SharePointRoot aka 14 hive}Resources

For SandBox solutions:

You need to use Embedded Resource files. An Embedded Resource is compiled directly into the output assembly. See the link about the their usage

Hope it helps!
