We want to invite all of you who can use localized versions of Power BI or any international data formats to participate in Power BI International testing. We appreciate any participation which will help us improve international quality of Power BI components. We will give Microsoft company Store credit prizes based on random drawing of folks who file bugs eligible for drawing.

Goal is to improve international Power BI quality and raise awareness of localized Power BI in the community.  


Any Power BI users who can use any of the languages covered by Power BI are welcome!

We will select random participants regardless of languages and give Microsoft Company Store credit prizes (

Every week we will provide $100 prize each to 3 random winners for valid issues filed and $50 prize to 1 random winner for using any localized language, and we will repeat this for 3 weeks.
