Does PowerApps support multi languages when offline?

Hello,

 

I am trying to create an app for different regions in this world but when the app is offline, would it still support the multi language feature for users to use?

Re: Does PowerApps support multi languages when offline?

Hi

 

If you talking about using MS.Translator, definitely it has to be online.

Just sharing, when I was using Bing Translator in Project Siena (the version before PowerApps), it must be connected to Internet to translate, or even audio reading. (for Audio Books).

 

When PA mentions about offline mode, it is more on when the App is not linked to any Cloud storage data.

 

Hope this helps.

TQ

So if I have a global app and it supports multi language. 
How do I capture data when app is offline and user cant read the screen? Or is there a mechanism where we can set our app to support multi languages when offline?

 

Or is offline only capbale of storing data and no other feature

Hi @SaimaRasheed,

 

While offline, PowerApps studio language will always default to Locale picked up by your Windows settings. That is saying that you can only change the language with the web version which can be configured to use alternate languages (by changing the borwoser settings or editing the url).

 

Regards,

Mona

Re: Does PowerApps support multi languages when offline?

when I change my OS language from English to Spanish and then go offline and try to use my app. Some of my buttons and texts disappear. It works fine in English offline but how do I fix this issue to use my app globally?

Offline/online will make no difference. Switching runtime locales however may well break the conversions between numbers and strings, depending on the underlying formulas used.
