Teradata Database supports many external client character sets and allows each application to choose the internal server character set best suited to each column of character data in Teradata Database. Because of automatic translation, it is normally the repertoire of characters required that determines the server character set to use.

No matter which server character set you chose, communication with the client is always in the client character set (also known as the session charset).
