    Dear,

    I am a programmer in Oracle PL / SQL in Oracle 10g
    I'd like to use the same time on one Database two types of fonts English and Russian (Cyrillic)
    Is this possible and how? NLS_LANG ?

    Regards!

    That depends upon the database character set in use. If the database was created with a UTF-8 character set then it should be possible to display either English or Russian characters. I have not seen any implementations using dual languages in one form or PL/SQL block.

    Thanks,
    How should I set theNLS_LANG parameters for Oracle, it will be possible to have both type of the Alphabet (English) and Cyrillic (rusian) fonts

    Regards!

    Begin reading here:

    http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14225/ch6unicode.htm#g1014017

    Please note that even though the database can support multiple languages it may not be possible to have two different languages displayed in the same block or form.
