About Multilingual Deployments
Upgrades: Release 6.2.1 only.
Environments: All environments.
As of Siebel 8.0, the upgrade process upgrades both the primary (base) language and all deployed languages for upgrades from Siebel 7.x. If you are upgrading to the current release from Release 6.2.1, however, the upgrade process only upgrades the primary (base) language. All other deployed languages must be upgraded manually.
If you have multilingual deployments, therefore, you must import multilingual repository strings and seed data after performing the upgrep upgrade process. For instructions on how to perform these imports, see 477094.1 (Article ID) on My Oracle Support. This document was formerly published as Siebel Technical Note 447.
For instructions on installing Siebel language packs, see the Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using.
For a list of supported code pages and encoding strategies, see Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms on Oracle Technology Network.
