charsets and locales Directories

The %SYBASE%\locales directory contains a subdirectory for each available language. Each language subdirectory contains a subdirectory for each character set available with that language. The files in %SYBASE%\charsets\charset_name contain information related to each particular character set, such as the definition of the character set and any sort orders available for that character set.

You can edit the locales.dat file to change the default language or character set for a platform, or add new associations between platform locale names and SAP ASE language and character name sets.
