The DBC.CharTranslationV view lists the client character sets for which Teradata supplies translation codes, and shows the code sequences the system uses to translate character data for each set from client form to server form and from server form back to client form.

The character set list in DBC.CharTranslationV does not include ASCII, EBCDIC, UTF8 and UTF16, for which the Teradata translation codes are permanently enabled. For an example, see About the DBC.CharTranslationsV View.

You can create custom (site-defined) character sets, but you must add the names of any custom character set to DBC.CharTranslationV before you can enable and use it. See Site-Defined Client Character Sets
