About character encodings

To configure your application to work with non-ASCII languages, you need to understand the character encodings used to store textual data in both your files and your databases.

A character encoding is the means by which human language is represented on a computer. Many different encodings are used to represent different languages. Special cases in character encoding occur in some text formats.

For more details, see The encoding of text in character-based fields.

The supported encodings are listed in Character encodings in Unica Campaign.
