Change date to french

 

I created my Power BI pbix while my regional settings was in english.

 

Now, my regional settings are in french, by the dates are still in english ("year", "january"...).

 

Is there a way to get french dates ?      I hope I don't have to recreate all the pbix from scratch.

Hi @trogne ,

Glad to see you found a solution!
The date hierarchy labels ("month" "year" "day") you mentioned before is determined by the Region where you first load this data source into Power BI Desktop in one pbix. This is why when you set the region to France and then re-create pbix it will be displayed in French.

Hi @trogne, could you try the following Changing the culture of a Power BI Desktop file?

Oh!  It works for the month name (e.g. "janvier" instead of "january").

 

But the date headers are still in english ("Year" / "Month" / "Day").

 

Can this be changed with the ".pbit" ?

 

Can you maybe provide a screenshot?

I can only guess that you are referring to the column names which as far as I know can only be changed by editing each column manually (I assume you don't want to build a multi-language report as explained here).

 

The date hierarchy labels ("month" "year" "day") can't be changed, as opposed to the other labels (like "Visiteurs" beow).

 

I created a new pbix from scratch (using french regional settings), and now there are in french.

 

I'm happy to have figured out we could copy-paste visuals between pbix !
