Using SET LANGUAGE command in SQL Server

By applying SET LANGUAGE command you can work with different language supported by Microsoft in the SQL Server. So this provides you a type of globalization feature in SQL Server.

Example:

Query

DECLARE @Today DATETIME
SET @Today = 'SEPTEMBER 23 2008'
 
SET LANGUAGE Italian
SELECT DATENAME(month, @Today) AS 'Month Name'
 
SET LANGUAGE us_english
SELECT DATENAME(month, @Today) AS 'Month Name' 
GO

The result window will be shown as follows:

Changed language setting to Italiano.
Month Name
------------------------------
settembre
 
(1 row(s) affected)
 
Changed language setting to us_english.
Month Name
------------------------------
September
 
(1 row(s) affected)
