The mapping file for a multibyte client character set contains single-byte and multibyte translation tables that define the mapping between an internal transition form and Unicode for the character set.

The single-byte translation tables are analogous to the E2I and I2E fields in the translation tables in DBC.CharTranslationV, which define the conversion between the client character set and the internal transition form.
