To define an extended site-defined client character set, you must create an entry in DBC.CharTranslationsV.

Follow the rules and procedures in Implementing Custom Character Sets, with the following exceptions:

  • The name of the character set follows the conventions described in Naming Character Sets.
  • Rather than mapping the client character set to the LATIN or KANJI1 internal form, the mapping is defined in terms of an internal transition form.
  • For all extended site defined client character sets, the E2IUp and I2EUp fields in DBC.CharTranslationsV are ignored; the uppercase properties of the character set are derived automatically.
