multilingual form

Hello,

I want to build a multilingual powerapp.

In the first step the user has to select from available languages in a dropdown field (maybe this will change later for UX reasons).

Depending on this selection the labeling of the fields should change.

I added a table which contains the translations and the headings of the table are the different languages.

 

My problem is that when using the lookup function it expects to get a string literal as a column name.

In my case the column name comes from the selected value of the dropdown field.

The formula looks like this:

LookUp(TranslationTable;German="germanFieldLabeling"; dropdownLanguageSelect.Selected.value)

I already tried to put the dropdownLanguageSelect.Selected.value into a variable which also doesn´t work.

 

 

Any idea how to get this working? Maybe a different approach?

Re: multilingual form

I could solve it by myself by rearanging the translation data from rows to columns.

Now it is working with the lookup function.
