The MULTINATIONAL keyword defines the name of the default collation sequence for the user to be one of the International sort orders. For more information, see Teradata Vantage™ SQL Data Manipulation Language , B035-1146 .

The MULTINATIONAL parameter determines that the International sort order is to be used. This parameter returns an error unless the hashing algorithm is set to recognize diacritical characters.

On International/European sites MULTINATIONAL collation is two-level.

On Japanese language sites, collation is single-level and is always available.
