Power BI Dev Camp: July 22nd | 11a PDT: Building Multi-language Reports for Power BI

Power BI provides Internationalization and localization features which make it possible to build multi-language reports. For example, you can design a Power BI report that renders in English for some users while rendering in Spanish, French, German or Dutch for other users. If a company or organization has the requirement of building Power BI reports that support multiple languages, it's no longer necessary to clone and maintain a separate PBIX project file for each language. Instead, they can increase reuse and lower report maintenance by designing and implementing multi-language reports.

While Power BI provides the features required to design and implement multi-language reports, the path to success is not overly intuitive. The purpose of this Power BI Dev Camp session is to explain how to use the Power BI features for Internationalization and localization from the ground up and to provide the technical guidance you need for building reports that support multiple languages. Along the way you will learn how to work with both metadata translations and content translations by writing custom code with the Tabular Object Model (TOM) and by using Tabular Editor to create and manage translations in the multi-language report development process. 

Attendee Prerequisites: Campers should already be familiar with data modeling and building reports in Power BI Desktop. It is also recommended (but not required) that campers are familiar with Tabular Editor and programming with C# and the .NET Framework.

Date: Thursday July 22nd

Time: 2:00 PM EST / 11:00 AM PST

Also be sure to have a look at the live sample of a multi-language report in action to give you a sense of what is possible.






Are these sessions recorded?  Unfortunatly I can't make the timeslot this time ☹️

It will be great if the recording will be made available as some of us may not be able to join due to meeting overlap.

Hi @stukayuk @Emmy66 


The dev camp site is at the following URL.

The video of Multi-language Dev Camp has not been released yet. However, other Dev Camp videos have been released, so Multi-language videos may be released soon.

There is no video, but there are docx and pdf at the bottom right of this page with detailed instructions.

Thank you for very impressive webinar!

 Are there any changes happening in the Power BI JavaScript API (EmbedPower BI reports)? Live demo ( does not work correctly. UserCulture funktion return 'en-US' value for all report sizes. On Wednesday 11 th of August it worked correctly.



Last week I made my own Embed PBI multi-language report with the same technigue: earlier it worked correctly, but from Thursday 12 of August userculture return 'en-US' value to all.


Here is the link for the recording of the seminar, if anyone missed it. link
