In normal translation, you could use the Microsoft Translator API that can be used in Power BI.  Google it. Here you don't have to actually rely on the translation and you could do the translation in DAX itself, based on your sample data, I am giving you the following DAX code. You have to add more months to the SWITCH statement.

Here is the dax code.

DateEN = 
VAR DayOfTheDate = VALUE(LEFT(SpanishCalendar[Date],SEARCH(" ",SpanishCalendar[Date],1,BLANK())-1))
VAR YearOfTheDate = VALUE(RIGHT(SpanishCalendar[Date],4))
VAR MidPortion = MID(SpanishCalendar[Date],SEARCH(" ",SpanishCalendar[Date],1,BLANK())+1,LEN(SpanishCalendar[Date])-5-SEARCH(" ",SpanishCalendar[Date],1,BLANK()))
VAR MonthOfTheDate =
    SWITCH(
        TRUE(),
        MidPortion="de janeiro de",1,
        MidPortion="de fevereiro de",2,
        MidPortion="de marco de",3,
        MidPortion="de abril de",4,
        MidPortion="de novembro de",11,
        MidPortion="de dezembro de",12,
        0
    )
RETURN
DATE(YearOfTheDate,MonthOfTheDate,DayOfTheDate)
