DAX Date-table not culture/language aware

I've created a Date-table with DAX in a tabular-model in Azure Analysis Service with Visual Studio 2017.
I develop in English (Culture en-US) but the reports are for Ducth-collegeas (Culture NL-nl). 
In the tabular-model is a Dutch-translation for the labels.

 

This translation of the labels works bij using PowerBI (Dutch) but the description in the date-table doesn't  change.   Monthname, Dayname etc etc.

Example  "DayOfWeek"; FORMAT ( [Date]; "dddd" );   shows Wednesday instead of Woensdag for the the Dutch of Mittwoch in German

I think I know what te problem is.
When you create the Date-table in DAX in PowerBI the values get recalculated.

 

When you make the Date-table in Azure Analyses Services (English) in a tabular model. AAS sees this as a column in a table and 'freezes' the values because it isn't a measue.

I believe it's not possible to 'recalculate' the value to let's see Dutch.

I wander how enterprises like with different stores solve this issue!

Hello,

 

Did you test how Wednesday is displayed in the report when consuming it on powerbi.com with explorer language set to Dutch? I remember one of my colleagues had his Chrome set to Dutch language, and everything was in Dutch on powerbi.com.

 

Regards,

Adrian

Hello,

 

I'm not using Powerbi.com yet but de Ducth desktop-version.

Al labels are translated conform my translation-file to Ducth except the 'values' in the table.
