Completing SAP ASE Localization Changes

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

Note: 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: Volume 2.
  1. Start Server Config.
  2. Choose Language.
    Note: If you change the sort order or default character set, you must reconfigure existing databases to work with the new data requirements. See the System Administration Guide: Volume 1.
  3. Click the appropriate Add/Remove option.

    You see the Install Languages or Install Character Sets dialog box, depending on your choice. The languages and character sets that appear in the Selected list are already installed and available for SAP ASE to use.

    You can configure only those languages for which message files exist. Some languages that do not have message file cannot be installed using the Server Config utility. If your language does not appear as one of the available languages, exit Server Config and install a new language module.

    1. Select a language or character set from the Available list, and click Add or Remove.
    2. Click OK. The Configure SAP ASE dialog box redisplays.
    Note: The Japanese language cannot coexist with any other installed language. If you install the Japanese language on SAP ASE, you must make it the default language.
  4. To change the default language, character set, or sort order, click the appropriate Set Default button.
  5. For languages or character sets:
    1. Select an option from the Available list, and click Add.
    2. Click OK.
    For sort orders:
    1. Select a sort order from the Available Sort Orders list.
    2. Click OK.
  6. In the Language Options dialog box, click OK.
  7. Click Save to return to the Configure SAP Servers dialog box.
  8. When you have completed the necessary configuration changes, click Exit to quit Server Config.
