SQL and Multiple Languages

Good evening,

I have an Accounting System that requires Latin1_General Binary, as the Collation, the software package allows for Chinese language, how can I have collation so that it will support Latin1_General Binary and Chinese??

The Windows users in China have their settings on their PC's in Chinese

The best way is to have 2 SQL Server instances. One installed with Latin1_General Binary ant the other one with a Chinese collation.

The collation only defines the sort order, when you're using NCHAR(), NVARCHAR(), NTEXT (SQL Server Collation Fundamentals).

Thus you can always use a custom collation when you query your data.

When you're getting "wrong" results due to internal sort problems of your system, then this must be resolved by the vendor.

So the question is: What is you're problem, you're trying to solve?
