change language of date

Hi,

I create a flow to get a timestamp in an excel file. It also works but I would like to have the weekdays in German. It should look like this

Mo. 15.06.2019 13:45  (Montag),

Di. 15.06.2019  13:45 (Dienstag),

etc.

 

And this is how it looks at the moment.

 

convertFromUtc(utcNow(), 'W. Europe Standard Time', 'ddd. dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm')

 

Mon. 15.06.2019 13:45

Tue. 15.06.2019 13:45

 

How can I realize it?

Thanks for your help.

Hi @RayRay ,

 

Do you want to change the language displayed in the date time to German?

 

Please consider adding an action Translate text, which will help change the language from English to German.

Hi @RayRay ,

 

Glad to hear that it can return a result as expected.

 

However, Flow currently doesn’t have an out-of-box function could be used to specify a custom format which includes a language placeholder likes PowerApps does.

 

Please feel free post your request at Flow Ideas Forum so that it could be taken into consideration in future releases:

The function you want is likely: 

convertTimeZone(utcnow(),'UTC','W. Europe Standard Time','dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm')

Hi @v-yamao-msft,

 

good idea. This is the result I would like to have. But is there another way to get this result without using the Microsoft Translator? Maybe somhow with the culture attitudes or something else?

 

Best regards

Ray
