Unicode convertion for Czech Language

Former Member

Hi all,

my system is not unicode and I have to conver it into a unicode one because we are going to plan a roll-out project for our czech branch. We have an ECC5.0 with English, German, Italian and Spanish languages.

I have understood, more or less, what we have to do in a technical way, but I would like to know something more about the growing of hardware space needs.

how much will my system grow reasonably after uniocde conversion and czech language installation? 10%, 20%?

Thanks a lot.

Have a look at the link below which will help to answer the question.

If the Unicode encoding form is UTF -8 database size growth will be 10% of its original size

If it is UTF 16 then it may grow up to 60 to 70% of the original size
