Changing SAP ASE Localization Configuration

Each language module uses approximately 2MB database space. If necessary, use the alter database command to increase the size of the master database before adding another language.

If you want to install more than one language on SAP ASE, and the master database is not large enough to manage more than one language, the transaction log may become too full. You can expand the master database only on the master device. See the System Administration Guide.
