Thanks for the information.
I intended "Latin" more in a general sense, since we could be receiving several "Latin" languages - in a manner of speaking. Hope that didn't confuse things. I also was under the impression that German was supported by Latin, but was not sure regarding Russian and I knew Greek was not.
Does Teradata support this "UTF16" format on a table by table or even column by column basis, or it this a "server level" setting. I think that is the biggest area of concern. The concern since Greek is a mix of 1 and 2 byte characters is - will Teradata always store Unicode defined data in two bytes per character, or does it use "smart storage" based on the characters actually being stored?
I definitely agree with the "monitor the whole data chain" comment. We're taking this step by step - and the last step is Teradata.
