SALANG environment variable

Specifies the language code for SQL Anywhere.


The language-code is a two-letter combination representing a language. For example, setting SALANG=DE sets the default language to German.

For information about supported language codes, see Understanding the locale language.

The first of the following methods that returns a value determines the default language:

  1. Check the SALANG environment variable.
  2. (Windows) Check the registry as set during installation or by dblang.exe. See Language Selection utility (dblang).
  3. Query the operating system for language information.
  4. If no language information is set, English is the default.
