Q

How to translate error message to English

I'm working in Japanese Environment, WindowsXP (Japanese). Oracle9i installed on that. By default, the error messages,

when I execute SQL/PLSQL in SQLPlus, are displayed in JAPANESE. Is there any setting that can be changed so that I can get all the error messages in English! Your answer definetely makes my Oracle life easier on these Japanese systems. Have you looked at changing your NLS_LANGUAGE setting? Something similar to the following might help:

ALTER SESSION SET NLS_LANGUAGE=American;
