Format date time to specific language



I need to format a date to a specific language.


Right now I have the following expression:


formatDateTime(outputs('Compose_3'), 'd MMMM yyyy')
This returns 3 January 2019, for example.
However, I also need this date to be displayed in German.
By consulting this page I found out about this:


DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2008, 8, 29, 19, 27, 15); 

Console.WriteLine(date1.ToString("d, M", 
// Displays 29, 8

Console.WriteLine(date1.ToString("d MMMM", 
// Displays 29 August
Console.WriteLine(date1.ToString("d MMMM", 
// Displays 29 agosto  


Is there a way to implement this in Flow?



Thank you

Hi @nhafala,


Flow does not currently support formatting time into a specific country or region.

I am afraid that your requirements cannot be achieved currently.

If you want to the feature that you mentioned to be supported in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

In addition, you could consider using Convert time zone action. Although it can't configure the time display style of a specific country, you could select the time zone and it provide a lot of time display format.
