odbc docu 'Perform translation for character data'

Where can I found documentation about the MS SQL-Server ODBC Configuration option 'Perform translation for character data'?
Surprisingly, this option seems to be particularily important for correct string-date conversion in 7.0 and solves my previous question (Title: "string to datetime conversion error in 7.0")

Read the topic in books online about SQLConfigDatasource and read the text in that article about Autotranslate option. It is very well described what does it mean

thanks. I have posted a follow up question regarding the influence of this option on datetime conversion, which is everything but obvious to me.
This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
