Mimer SQL now with extended support for all major Indian languages

Mimer SQL now with extended support for all major Indian languages Mimer Information Technology today announced the immediate availability of an extensive support for 15 major Indian languages in the Mimer SQL database management system (DBMS). This means that text data in any of these languages can be searched and sorted according to the rules for each specific language. No other DBMS can offer such a complete support for all major languages in India. The Unicode 4.0 standard character set supported by Mimer SQL has a code map covering more than one million different characters. The Unicode default sorting order - collation - defines a unified sorting order for all these characters. Many languages in the world have deviations from the Unicode default sorting order. Mimer Information Technology AB, Uppsala, Sweden, today released extended collations covering 15 of the major languages in India (Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Konkani, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Tamil and Telugu). Apart from the 15 Indian languages, collation definitions for several other languages are now added to Mimer SQL. One of these languages is Dzongkha, which probably has the world's most complex collation definition (Dzongkha is spoken in Bhutan). "Mimer SQL is the world leader in multilingual DBMS support, with pre- defined collations for more than 150 languages. Support for other languages can easily be added with user defined collations", says Stefan Eck, Product Manager, Mimer Information Technology. "This is very important for anyone developing software products for the international markets. Our support for all major Asian languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and many Indian languages makes Mimer SQL attractive in the growing Asian markets", concludes Stefan Eck. Developer and evaluation versions of Mimer SQL including collation definitions for more than 150 languages are available for free download from Mimer's developer web site (http://developer.mimer.com/).
