Video : Build an Automated Multilingual Product Dimension with Power BI Desktop

I’ve recorded a short video (< 10 minutes) showing off some of the data manipulation/transformation/integration capabilities of Power BI Desktop.  In this video I take some raw product data and a set of international languages and build a Product dimension that contains translations of each of the raw products for each of the supplied languages.

The resulting product dimension build routine (using just the Power BI Desktop GUI) will automatically (following a refresh) cope with either additional products or additional languages to the raw source files.

For the translation itself I utilise the Microsoft Translate service from the Azure Marketplace. No coding required.

The video can be found here, on YouTube.
