This chapter describes the available localization features from the point of view of the administrator. PostgreSQL supports localization with two approaches:
Using the locale features of the operating system to provide locale-specific collation order, number formatting, translated messages, and other aspects.
Providing a number of different character sets defined in the PostgreSQL server, including multiple-byte character sets, to support storing text in all kinds of languages, and providing character set translation between client and server.
