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.
While Power BI provides all the features required to design and implement multi-language reports, the path to success is tricky and not intuitive. The purpose of this 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 guidance for building reports that support multiple languages.
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.
What Campers Will Learn:
- Learn about the Power BI features for Internationalization and localization
- Learn to build Power BI reports that support localization
- Learn the difference between metadata translations and content translations
- Learn how to add and manage metadata translations using Tabular Editor
- Learn to program metadata translations using C# and Tabular Object Model (TOM)
- Learn how to design and implement a content translation strategy
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.
