Conversion to month name always in English

Hi,

I have a query looking like this:
SELECT DATENAME(month, GETDATE()) + ', ' + CONVERT(NVARCHAR(4),year(GETDATE()),121) AS 'Month Name'

Open in new window


This renders the following result:
October, 2013

Open in new window


But say that I would like to have the month name in Swedish instead. That would then be rendered as "Oktober, 2013".

Is this possible to alter?

are you able to use 'set language' so all is in Swedish? or is it just the month names and other things must stay in English?

try this:

SELECT

FROM sys.syslanguages
where alias = 'Swedish'
;

SET LANGUAGE Swedish
SELECT DATENAME(month, getdate()) AS 'Month Name'
;
