Speak the Right Language with Your AS/400 System

An IBM Redbooks publication


This IBM Redbooks publication can help you to implement the correct national language
environment on your AS/400 system. Whether you plan to migrate your
current primary language on your AS/400 system to one of the other
available national language versions, or you simply want to verify your
current system settings, you are guided through the tasks.

This book is divided into two parts:

Part 1 contains an introduction to national language support topics.
It provides the tasks required to plan and perform a primary language
change, or if you want to keep your current primary language,
it can assist you in setting the correct system values.

Part 2 contains reference information with a detailed explanation of
national language support for various topics.
These topics include CA/400, TCP/IP applications, and printing.

Chapter 10 is especially targeted for application providers to make them
aware of the considerations when implementing solutions
in different countries or in a multilingual environment.

This book is intended to assist customers, business partners, and IBM
technical and services professionals who are directly involved in
setting up the AS/400 national language environment correctly.
