    That should be fine. Language translation is automatic.

    The only possible problem I can see is if you try a translation to a character set where there is no translation. I'm not sure if it stops the import or if the data imported (that can't be translated) ends up pound signs (####) or something.

    Test it by exp/imp'ing 1 small object.

    U can use the Alter database command to change the Character set after importing your data but still there is no gurantee that u will have all the data as there is chance that u are going to corrupt some of your data.
    so it is strongly advised to have same character set between the two database before using export/import.
