Locales

Verity locales are code modules and data tables that allow documents to be indexed and searched in a language-specific manner. Locales are at the core of Verity’s support for internationalization. By installing and configuring locales, an administrator can give a language-aware client application the ability to work in languages other than English.

The multilanguage locale uses the UTF-8 character set, which is based on Unicode 3.2. Use of UTF-8 allows individual collections built on the multilanguage locale to contain documents in more than one language.
