Convert datetime to text - how to specify output locale?

Dear community!

Need some advice about the next use case. I need to convert the date to a text format that will be later used in the workflow for folder creation (part of the full path).

When I use "Convert datetime to text" I get a result in Russian, according to the locale (region) settings on my PC (see screen).



But a need to get this in English (April instead of Апрель). How can I achieve that without changing my default Region/Locale setting in the system?


Thanks in advence,

You could create a lookup table through a custom object variable with:

%{ 'Property1': 'Value1', 'Property2': 'Value2', 'Property3': 'Value2' }%


Property1 = Апрель

Value1 = April


%English['Апрель']% would return April


Thanks for the suggestion. I was also thinking about substitution from some master data source.
