The Teradata Database language support mode defines the global character set default, which determines how object names and user data are stored in the database.

IF you enable this language support mode … Teradata Database stores object names using … and the user default server character set is…
Standard UNICODE LATIN
Japanese UNICODE UNICODE

You can optionally specify the default character set for individual users and table columns, which overrides the global default character set for storing user data.

See Specifying the Default Server Character Set.
