Employee Ideas App custom localization

Hello! I need to localize 'Employee Ideas' app to Russian and I was pretty sure that I could manually add my own column into library "colLocalization", so it will translated automatically for users, because of variable gblUserLanguage. But I can't even open the library. Is there any solutions? I also could share this translation so anyone may use it.
Thank you.

The Employee Ideas app (and other Dataverse for Teams apps), uses an approach of building a static localization table. This is in the app as static excel data.

You would need to add rows for the all of the localized strings, and add your language code. You can create your own static file, add it to the app, and append it during the app's OnStart to add it to the localization collection.


Here is the table of values that being localized.

Ugh, formatting on that is bad. Let me know if you can work with it, or if you'd like a cleaner file/table.

Not applicable

Thank you for response! I did what you advised, it worked. But there are a lot of problems here. Like all the stuff do not work properly, can't even use vote button. So it looks like I need a lot of time to fix all the problems inside, or may I be wrong? @GarethPrisk

Simply changing the localization file/collection should have no issue. The app runs in all languages, and can even switch on-the-fly.


Do you have any errors in the studio? Perhaps the app OnStart is now broken, or something which may limit functionality in the app itself.

Not applicable

Oh, I just switch language to English-US inside of general teams settings while working on app and all this stuff gone, now it works properly! Thank you so much, your advises were extremely useful.

P.S. I'm working on full Russian localization now, if anyone else need this I could send .xlsx file and short tutorial how to use it if needed.

Hi all,


I am new to Powerapps. I am trying to change the app language to Turkish, but need some guidance. Can you please help?


Thank you.
