Teradata and Chinese Language

Hi Guys!

I have a quick question with regards to Teradata and the Traditional/Simplified Language. I have been informed that Teradata does not support these languages. We are currently using release and version as shown below.

• RELEASE V2R.06.01.01.12
• VERSION 06.01.01.11

We plan to import some raw source delimited file with chinese language data in it into the teradata database, it currently shows up as funny character as boxes, squares etc...

Can teradata support chinese language in the above version? If yes, how do i proceed to get it work ? Just some simple upgrade in the language drivers?

Thanks!

somehow there's an extra space in the link, remove the %20 in the link will do it.

Hi 

I am trying to load file (text file) which has chinese characters in a field. multi loader is loading '???????????' instead of actual data'ガイドライン ト'.

Also using Character set Unicode in data type yet it does not convert

Teradata SQL Assistant Version:13.10.0.02

Database Version :13.10.01.04

Thanks
