Translate an embedded Power App based on Dynamics / CDS translation

Hi

 

I am currently working on a Canvas App, embedded on the Dynamics CRM Account Form.

We have already populated the Translation within Dynamics and it works fine for Model Driven Apps etc.

However, the embeded App will always display Field Labels in English, even If I switch to a different Language in CRM.

How can I show the Field Labels in the same Language as the Dynamics Form (based on User Setting)?

 

I have a couple of ideas on how to translate but not on how to pass the required Language to the app.

Any input would be much appreciated!

Re: Translate an embedded Power App based on Dynamics / CDS translation

The translations within a PowerApp will correlate with translations in D365/CDS, if

  • The D365/CDS translations are configured (you indicated they are)
  • The User's language setting in D365/CDS is set the non-standard language
    • Note: The User's language setting in PowerApps will dictate if the Studio is translated as well
  • Things which are translated
    • Form Labels  will automatically translate
      • Any updates to the form labels will break the inheritance
    • Option set values
  • Things not automatically translated:
    • Data
    • Customizations without an explicit translation

That being said, you can also do custom translations if needed. This may depend on the volume of items to translate.

Re: Translate an embedded Power App based on Dynamics / CDS translation

Hi @GarethPrisk 

 

Thanks for your input. Maybe we have a different Version in the Europe Region or it's just me not understanding something but your statement doesn't seem to be true for me.

I have a Form with Fields within my Canvas App. However the Attribute "DisplayName" of each DataCard is set to a fixvalue (i.e. "Primary Contact").

As a consequence if I look at the embedded App within a Model Driven App the Display Name will always be Static and the Translations do not seem to have any effect (even if the do for the Model Driven App).

What Settings am I missing in PowerApps to pull the Translations from CDS to my Canvas App Form?
