How to localize FileProviderUI Action name?

Classification:Bug Reproducible:Always
FileProvider Framework

Summary: Unclear how we can localize the action name for one of the FileProviderUI custom actions. The name is defined in an info.plist and it is unclear what key to use for an infoPlist.strings file. Since there can be multiple actions and they are added to an array under `NSExtension/NSExtensionFileProviderActions` and under the key `NSExtensionFileProviderActionName` inside each item. Simply having `NSExtensionFileProviderActionName` on `infoPlist.string` doesn't seem to work.

Steps to Reproduce:  Build the app in another language and see the FileProviderUI action not be localized.

Expected Results: Expected a way to localize FileProviderUI actions

Actual Results: The title of the action is not localized.

Version/Build: iOS 11 GM (15A372)

Configuration: Xcode 9.0 GM (9A235 ) iPhone X Simulator

Engineering has provided the following feedback regarding this issue: We don’t have a solution for you currently. The most probable course of action is that we will end up asking you to localize you action name in Localizable.strings, not InfoPlist.strings. If you do that (and the plan does not change), then your action name will be localized once the original bug here (34197258) gets fixed. This is a dupe but we’re holding on to it and not closing it for now but we wanted you to know that it has been analyzed and we’re working on the original so that you can do something about this once the dupe gets fixed.
