Configuring Multiple Language Support for Terminal Client
Supporting multiple languages requires the <TerminalEncoding> setting in the client session configuration file to be synchronized with the cpstream setting for the character Progress session. When starting a Progress client session, you must include the -cpstream <encoding> parameter, which directs Progress to transform the internal database encoding sent to the client. The client must know which encoding is being sent in order to display the correct characters on the screen and return the correct data to the Progress client.
For Windows, the <TerminalEncoding> setting must be UTF-8 for all languages.
Note: Progress on a Windows Server does not support the display of double-byte characters through its terminal client. Consequently, if your system uses Progress on a Windows server, the QAD .NET UI will not receive the data it needs to display double-byte characters such as Japanese and Chinese.
For UNIX, refer to the following table, which identifies the TerminalEncoding setting based on the QAD language code and Progress codepage (cpstream) language code:
