Power BI Dynamic Language Translation.

Hi All,

 

Is there any way to change the language of the column name Dynamically depending on the country.

 

For Eg if an Chinese person login then automatically the column name should be dispalyed for them in chinese,If german or spain person login then it should be displayed in their own language.

 

Can you please help me on this please. 

 

 

 

Thanks

Vannikannan

Re: Power BI Dynamic Language Translation.

Hi Dale,

 

Thanks for Reply.

 

The link which you have shared me translate "Data" to different language,But I want to translate column names dynamically to different language.

 

For Example if I have an table name Sale when an chinese user login he should be able to see it in his own language "拍卖".

 

And even the column names in the dataset  should be translated to there own language.Then only we will be able to provide the SSBI to the end user.

 

Help me on this.

 

Thanks

I'm trying to combine these two by following the Curbal video "Multilanguage Multilingual reports in Power BI" and the Bookmarks version from Emun Uzun's LinkedIn POC but I can't get it to work.

It all works up until I toggle between the bookmarks, the problem is that the Parameter (selected language parameter I created) does not change with the bookmark. 

Is this a known fault/not implemented function ? 

I'm trying to solve it this way since I don't want to duplicate my data (my data should not be translated, only column headers)

Hi Chris,

 

As of now the curbal video is the only workaround we have got for Dynamic language translation.

Re: Power BI Dynamic Language Translation.

I'm trying to solve this translation issue for an internal web application, which means that we have control over how the reports are built and what components in power BI desktop used. With these prerequisites, isn't it possible to handle the language using javacript ? I've just had a quick look at the DOM and done some simple tests and it seems like it could work. 

 

What I'm thinking of doing is for each component (table, slicer and so on) that we use in our reports I'll create some sort of selecter in javascript which extracts the values, i.e. for a table I'd extract the column headers, and pass them to my own translation service which returns the translated value and replaces the original value.

 

Someone must've thought about this before so I'm hoping if this is another dead end then someone who knows hopefully reads this and stops me. If not I'll probably move forward with this. If it works I'll try and package the solution so that other people embedding reports can use it
