NLS_LANG Parameter Fundamentals A locale is a set of information addressing linguistic and cultural requirements that corresponds to a given language and country. Traditionally, the data associated with a locale provides support for formatting and parsing of dates, times, numbers, and currencies, etc. Providing current and correct locale data has historically been the responsibility of each platform owner or vendor, leading to inconsistencies and errors in locale data. Setting the NLS_LANG environment parameter is the simplest way to specify locale behavior for Oracle software. It sets the language and territory used by the client application and the database server. It also indicates the client's character set, which corresponds to the character set

a file, the system will use the file containing error nls character set in oracle 11g messages in U.S. English that comes with the installation set nls_lang in sqlplus software. This file is named error_codes.text and is stored in the >system directory. Follow nls_lang al32utf8 this procedure to define a file containing translated system error messages. 1. Edit the system error messages file named error_codes.tin by translating the http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/products/globalization/nls-lang-099431.html error messages written in U.S. English into another language supported by NLS. Name the translated file error_codes.language.tin and store it in the >system>error directory. 2. Copy the file error_codes.dd to the file error_codes.language.dd. Store the file in the >system>error directory. 3. Issue the create_table command, using the http://stratadoc.stratus.com/vos/15.1.1/r212-00/ch7r212-00g.html error_codes.language.tin file and the error_codes.language.dd file as input. Name the output file error_codes.table and store it in the >system>error directory. 4. Issue the make_message_file command, using the error_codes.table file as input. Name the output file error_codes.language.text and store it in the >system directory. For information about the create_table and make_message_file commands, see the VOS System Administrator's Guide(R012). Figure 7-8 shows two error messages in Italian from an error_codes.italiano.tin file. It also shows the messages in U.S. English, from which the Italian was translated. / =num 1001 =name e$bad_base_addr =text 'Indirizzo di base invalido.' /* Invalid base address. */ =category os_error_codes / =num 1002 =name e$bad_disk =text 'Operazione richiesta no pu\'o essere gestita da qiesto disco. /* Requested operation cannot be performed on this disk. */ =category os_error_codes Figure 7-8.

Customization Features SQL Support Oracle Server NLS Architecture Oracle's National Language Support (NLS) architecture allows you to store, process, and retrieve data in native languages. It ensures that database utilities and error messages, sort order, date, time, monetary, numeric, and calendar conventions automatically adapt to the native language and locale. Parameter settings determine the behavior of individual conventions. Locale-Independent Operation Oracle's National Language Support architecture is implemented with the use of the Oracle NLS Runtime Library. The NLS Runtime library provides a comprehensive suite of language-independent functions, which allows for proper text and character processing and language convention manipulations. These functions are for a specific language and locale and are governed by a set of locale-specific data identified and loaded at runtime. The following diagram illustrates loading locale-specific data at run time. For example, French and Japanese locale data is loaded. The locale-specific NLS data is stored in a directory specified by the ORA_NLS* environment variable. For each new release, there is a different corresponding ORA_NLS data directory. For Oracle8, release 8.1, the ORA_NLS33 directory is used. For example, on most UNIX platforms, the environment variable ORA_NLS33 should be set to $ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data. Table 1-1 Location of NLS Data Release Environment Variable 7.2 ORA_NLS 7.3 ORA_NLS32 8.0, 8.1 ORA_NLS33 If your system is running in a mixed Oracle environment, you must ensure that the appropriate ORA_NLS* variable is set and that the corresponding NLS data files for that release are available. A boot file is used to determine the availability of the NLS objects which can be loaded. Oracle supports both system and user boot files. The user boot file gives you the flexibility to tailor what NLS locale objects will be available for the database, thus helping you control memory consumption. Also, new locale-data can be added and some locale-data components can be customized Client/Server Architecture Oracle8i is implemented using a client/server architecture. The language-dependent operations are controlled by a number of parameters and environment variables on both the client and the server. The server and client may run in the same or different loca
