For Adaptive Server

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.

NoteIf you want to install more than one language on Adaptive Server, 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. For more information, see the System Administration Guide.

To configure localization for Adaptive Server on the server, start syconfig:

  1. Choose Language from the Configure Adaptive Server Enterprise dialog box.

    Server Config displays the Language Options dialog box.

    NoteIf 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 for more information.

  2. To add or remove a language or character set, click the appropriate Add/Remove option.

    Server Config displays the Install Languages or Install Character Sets dialog box, depending on your choice.

    The languages and character sets displayed in the Selected list are already installed and available for Adaptive Server to use.

    Server Config permits you to configure only those languages for which it finds message files. Since we do not provide message files for all possible languages, some languages cannot be installed using the Server Config utility. If your language does not appear as one of the available languages you must exit Server Config and follow the instructions in “Installing a new language module”.

    To add or remove a language or character set:

    1. Select a language or character set from the Available list, and click Add or Remove.

    2. Click OK. The Configure Adaptive Server dialog box redisplays.

    NoteThe Japanese language cannot coexist with any other installed language. If you install the Japanese language on Adaptive Server, you must make it the default language.

  3. To change the default language, character set, or sort order, click the appropriate Set Default button in the Language Options dialog box.

    Server Config displays the appropriate Change dialog box:

    Adaptive Server supports only one sort order at a time, so the Sort Order heading provides only the Set Default option.

  4. 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.

  5. In the Language Options dialog box, click OK.

  6. In the Configure Adaptive Server dialog box, choose Save to save the localization settings and return to the Configure Sybase Servers dialog box.

  7. When you have completed the necessary configuration changes, click Exit to quit Server Config.
