Optimizing Bilingual Report Accessibility in Power BI

I am working on a Power BI report, which is currently in English, but it needs to be translated into French. The goal is to have a Power BI report available in both French and English. I thought about duplicating the report pages and creating two buttons ("French" and "English") to allow users to navigate the report in their chosen language based on the selected button. My question is whether I can automate the translation within the report without duplicating it to avoid increased loading times.

I appreciate your assistance with this matter.

Hi @HANAE ,
Based on your description, you can use Translations Builder to create multilingual reports. By using Translations Builder, you can create a bilingual report that allows users to switch between English and French without having to copy the report page, thus maintaining efficient load times.
Of course it is possible to create buttons to enable the switching if you want to, which requires you to interact between the buttons and bookmarks.
