    Unanswered: Data in sysobject table

    I understand that there are separate installables available for different languages (chinese, french etc.) in sql server. The question is, if I install sql server in say, chinese, does it mean that the schema catalog information stored in system tables (say sysobjects) will also be in chinese ? or the data rows in sysobjects is only in english.

    Thanks for any help

    Every case I've ever seen has the system tables and columns named in English, although I've heard of a few (say maybe 3 out of several hundred thousand, over more than ten years) cases where the columns were named in the native language. All of those cases were more or less unbridled disasters, which I think were self-inflicted injuries (where someone had gone places and done things that they shouldn't).
