MSN Weather in Flow

Is there a way to get MSN Weather forecast inside a flow in other language than English?

We have a flow sending a "good day" message to our Teams channel every morning. I thought it would be a nice touch to add weather forecast to it. Unfortunatelly, the descriptive weather forecast returned by the connector is in English only. How can I get it to switch to another language (Polish in my case)?

Can you please post some screen shots of the flow where the message is being generated?

@Emin

The reason I ask is that I have set up a test using the template "Get today's weather forecast for my current location"

Based on the above it should be easy to change the English, to another language.

Unless of course what you are doing is diferent please post some pictures and as much detail as possible that is relevant.

Hi @Emin,

 

Do you want to post the temperature message on Microsoft Teams in Polish?

Please consider using the connector Microsoft Translator to translate the source language to target language.

I have made following flow for testing. Please check it for a reference.

Considered that, but the translation is very poor indeed. Not good enough to be usable.

OK, I may need to do it this way indeed. I hoped to use the descriptive "Day Summary", as it is very good in English, but apparently is not provided in other languages. 

 

BTW - the "Click-through link" is returned empty when I call the MSN Weather service.

Hi @Emin

Give it a go and let us know if this is more suitable, you'll certainly be able to put an accurate translation in.

Also, click through link is out the box on the Flow. I haven't looked at or configured it but i'm sure that will also be a simple fix.

I gave up for now. I turned to AccuWeather, they have a very nice API that makes well translated forecasts availble. It also gives a lot of other data and the free version of the free plan allows 50 calls per day which way more than I need for my purpose (need to querry just 3 cities in Poland once per day).
