Another language for the buttons in a Model-Driven app

I've create my first Model-Driven app.

 

Being Dutch I would like to have the text of buttons in the menu. like New, Delete etc., in Dutch. I've enabled Dutch in de settings of the environment. But they remain English.

 

It's strange though, cause the language of my browser is Dutch, so every other menu is Dutch (like Settings is Instellingen), but not in the app itself.

 

How can I change this?

Hi @EllenHeijmans ,

 

Do you want to change the Model-driven App’s display language?

 

If you do, you need to open/play a Model-driven App, then change and apply the language:

If the dropdown lists do not contain Dutch, you will have to apply the language to your organization using a Global Admin role user account. If you are using one, then on the PowerApps portal –> setting -> select “Advanced settings”.

Select the dropdown arrow -> select System Administration -> choose Dutch -> select Apply.

Then you could go to Personalization Settings to change language.

The Buttons all have a Text property so you can have them say anything yo want. I have several multi-lingual apps where I check the language at the start of the app and change the text on the buttons using If statements.
