Understanding the locale language

The locale language is the language being used by the user of the client application, or expected to be used by users of the database server. For more information about how to find locale settings, see Determining locale information.

The client library, and the database server, both determine the language component of the locale in the same manner:

  1. Use the value of the SALANG environment variable, if it exists. See SALANG environment variable.

  2. For Windows, if the SALANG environment variable doesn't exist, check the SQL Anywhere language registry entry. See Registry settings on installation.

  3. Check the operating system language setting.

  4. If the language still cannot be determined by the above settings, default to English.
