Why Are Messages Not Shown In Suitable Language, like Dutch, Using SQL*Plus ?

(Doc ID 1221635.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 27, 2016

Applies to:

SQL*Plus - Version: and later   [Release: 9.2 and later ]
Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: and later    [Release: 9.2 and later]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


You set NLS_LANG=DUTCH_THE NETHERLANDS.WE8MSWIN1252 and start sqlplus.

You do not see the messages in Dutch language. It still displays English language.

Why are messages not shown in Dutch when running sqlplus?
