Step-by-Step Guide: How to Change Language on SharePoint’s Power Apps Studio


Guide on How to Change Language in Power Apps Studio

Are you looking to modify the display language of Power Apps Studio? Here’s a comprehensive guide to assist you. The process might seem daunting, but with these easy steps, you can switch languages seamlessly. Whether you’re familiar with SharePoint or diving into Power Apps Studio for the first time, this guide will be immensely helpful.

Understanding the Basics

Before we delve into changing the language in Power Apps Studio, let’s clarify a common misconception about altering the display language. Power Apps Studio relies on your browser’s language settings, not the internal Microsoft 365 settings. Keep reading to get a clearer picture.

Common Mistakes When Changing the Language

A frequent initial step by many is navigating to the settings in the Maker portal. From there, one might be tempted to choose the option labeled “change your language“. This action redirects users to the “Language and Region” within Microsoft 365 settings. While this indeed allows users to change the display language, it’s essential to understand that the chosen language here exclusively affects Microsoft 365 apps like SharePoint, Outlook, and the online versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Unfortunately, this has no bearing on Power Apps Studio.

The Right Method to Modify Display Language

To change the display language in Power Apps Studio, focus on your web browser’s language settings. If you’re using Google Chrome, navigate to settings and then search for “languages“. In case you’re utilizing the Chromium version of Microsoft Edge, the language settings can be found at a different location.

For different browsers, always refer to their respective settings to make the necessary changes.


Adjusting your browser’s language will reflect when you next open Power Apps Studio. For instance, setting Chrome’s language to Spanish will display the designer interface in Spanish. We hope this guide provided clarity on how to change the language on SharePoint and specifically within Power Apps Studio.
