2.2 Specifying a Partition's Multilingual Attributes

It is recommended that all partitions are defined as multilingual.

To provide multilingual support within a partition you must define the languages you want to work with in the partition.

For both Visual LANSA a new partition is automatically defined as multilingual and a default language is specified for the partition.

In an IBM i a new partition is automatically defined as multilingual and an appropriate default language (and any other languages) must be defined before the partition can be used.

LANSA on an IBM i

For an IBM i Master system you change the new partition after it has been created using the Housekeeping option Change partition being worked with. After selecting the partition you wish to work with, use the Housekeeping option Work with partition multilingual attributes to set up or review the multilingual attributes of the partition.

Select the language and options you need for your partition. Advice for each option is in this guide.

Visual LANSA

In a Visual LANSA Slave or Independent System, after creating a partition or changing a partition to be multilingual you define the supported languages using the Language Settings tab on the Partition definition.

Advice for each option is in this guide.

You can define any number of languages (from any of the language groups) that are to be supported within the partition. The definition of a language includes these options:

Partition identifier

Language settings

Ideographic character conversion
