    NLS (Arabic and English)

    Dear all
    --------
    I' m trying to build a database that will hopefully store snd retrieve data in both english and arabic.
    The database is Oracle version 9i will be installed on Redhat 7.x. As today is planned the database.

    1. What language/charset do I choose for the OS installation to support english and Arabic that can be compatible with Oracle database charset to support both english and arabic
    How about UNICODE like UTF-8 ?

    2. What Character set do I choose for Oracle that manage both English and Arabic.


    Regards
    Hamhey

    Hi Hassan,
    When you install oracle, as much as I remember you should choose a language for installation besides you have nls environment vairables like you have pointed. Do you know what language to choose when installing Oracle.
