Localized versions of SQL Anywhere


Localization refers to the linguistic and cultural adaptation of a product to a target locale, which is usually a combination of language and country/region. Localization affects many components, including packaging, installation, documentation, software user interface, and error/warning/information messages.

SQL Anywhere is localized to, and can be purchased in, one of five languages:

Language choice is determined at installation. The software and online documentation is installed and configured for that language.

On Windows, the Start menu items allow the software to be reconfigured between the installed language and English. The Language Selection utility (dblang) allows the software to be reconfigured to any of the available languages, including the additional deployment languages. See Deployment software localization on Windows, and Language Selection utility (dblang).
