change language of FormatDateTime

Dear,

 

I have a scheduled flow every month. I would like to have a dynamic text with the name of the current month.

 

So i have this in my text: 

formatDateTime(utcNow(),'MMMM') resulting in this 'June' (current month).
However i want to change this to dutch language, so how do i change this?
 
Cheers

Hi @Vbv ,

 

Not like PowerApps, Microsoft Flow doesn’t have the ability to change language of date time within formatDateTime function.

 

However, you could consider using Translate text likes below for your scenario:

Please take a try with it on your side.

Hi @Vbv ,

 

There is a flow step called 'Microsoft Transalator'. To use this service you need to sign up to Azure.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/translator/business/trial/

 

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/cognitive-services/translator-text-api/

 

Also Google offers Transalating Text service  API

 

https://cloud.google.com/translate/docs/translating-text

 

You probably need to use the google API transalting service via HTTP flow step method.

 

Thanks
