I believe you could better servered with UTF8 for borth the NLS_NATIONAL_CHARACTER and NLS_CHARACTER parameters, and defining usijng nvarchar2 data types whenever convenient.  If you have any Java applications, you need to use the JDBC-OCI driver, and could look at Oracle's usage of Java's resource bundling for further localization support.  It is convenient to define the NLS parameters when one creates the database, since commands such as "alter database set nls_character set <nls_character_set name>;" work based if the existing character is inclusive - i.e., a subset of- in the new character set both logically and physically.
There is a good manual on National Language Support for each 8i release.

Cheers.
