Power Query : rename multiple columns dynamically

Hello,

I'm using Power Query and Power BI. I use extractions from an automaton and a file allowing me to translate the name of the columns into something understandable.
There are a lot of columns, I would like to find on power query a function allowing me to rename the columns of my table automatically using the 2nd "translation" file

For example: my column name is: "PoofliW" the function would find its translation in the file and automatically replace "PoofliW" with "Power of lights (W)"

Thanks a lot
