How to select a table's view regardless of the environment language(s)?

When you make a Canvas Power App and use the filter function to show only a subset of records using a named view, the name of that view is depending on the installed languages in the environment.

For example, I use

Filter(Contacts, 'Contacts (Views)'.'All Contacts')

in my Development Environment (which has English as the default language).

When this app is imported in another environment that does not have English installed, it does not find that specific view since its name is different... 

Is there any way to make this language independent?

Make the view names numeric.

That's not really an option, since some of the views we rely on are "default" views and are created during the initialization of the environment, but they get a different name depending on the activated languages...
