Conversion of client single-byte characters is handled as follows:

  • Mapping is performed using ASCII, EBCDIC or active client character sets (as of the last restart of Teradata Database) in the DBC.CharTranslationsV view.
  • The E2I conversion between client single-byte characters and Unicode is done as if the characters were first converted to LATIN strings and then from LATIN to Unicode.
  • The E2I conversion between client single-byte characters and KANJISJIS is done as if the characters were first converted to LATIN strings and then the TRANSLATE(string USING Latin_TO_KanjiSJIS) function were applied.
