Business Friendly Names for columns in SSAS Tabular Model

I have a need to use business friendly column name(s) and descition in Power BI. I am using SSAS tabular model in power bi using live connection.
I am trying to achieve as below
1. Business friendly name(s) will make analysts life easy when they develop reports
2. No need to change labels in visuals

I thought of using translations in SSAS but it seems Power BI service is not yet supporting this feature.

Please help me to understand the best way to handle my need.


Thanks in advance

you will need to change the column label name from the source itself or load the data to a composite o import mode model and change the columns naming via Quering editor, or via a dataflow setting also. if you will mantain the live conection with the SSAS tabular model them you need to change the label name on the source itself for consumption
