Search Text and replace it from a csv list

Hello everyone,

I’m new to powershell

I’m trying to figure out how to link a list of words (csv) to look for in several files and replace them with those in this same List.

basically I try to make it look in all files for the text OldNameServer1 and replace it with NewNameServer1
I think it’s doable but I don’t know how to attach the Foreach to my Select-String -replace.

I admit that I am lost.

My csv

Old, new
OldNameServer1, NewNameServer1
OldNameServer2, NewNameServer2

Thank you if you can refer me
