Teradata Database translates the characters:

  • Received from a client system into a form suitable for storage and processing on the server.
  • Returned to a client into a form suitable for storage, display, printing, and processing on that client.
  • Thus, the server communicates with each client in the language of that client without the need for additional software. It is essential, for this process to work properly, for the database to be informed of the correct character set used by each client.
