Messages are distributed in United States English (Language-id 'EN', optional Country-id 'US') only, although customers or Teradata Corporation in various countries can provide additional languages.
The mechanism by which the CLIv2 error messages may be defined in other languages is described in User-Defined Character Sets.
If a message must be returned, but messages are not available in the specified language, then the message number with fixed message text of '(REQUIRED MESSAGE TABLE IS NOT AVAILABLE)' in United States English will be returned. For example, the message 'CLI0538 REQUEST REJECTED BY DELAY' would be presented as:CLI0538 (REQUIRED MESSAGE TABLE IS NOT AVAILABLE)
