Database Collations: What are the difference between Spanish1, Spanish2, Spanish4 and Spanish5?

Primary tabs

Caché, Globals, CSS

Hi everyone!

     I am trying to choose the best collation for a new application that will be running on a spanish locale (Chile).

     I can see there are database collations for Spanish1, Spanish2, Spanish4 and Spanish5. What is the difference between them? I can't find anything on our documentation. Should I simply choose the latest (Spanish5)?

Kind regards,

Amir Samary


Hi, Amir!

Have you looked at the recent article from Alexander Koblov related to collations? I hope it has some answers on this topic.
