Most hosts can use only 7-bit characters (hex 00 to 7F). However, many European languages also include 8-bit characters (hex 80 to FF) such as ö or ç that hosts cannot interpret. To ensure that you can use these 8-bit characters on your screen display and still be able to communicate with the host in a way that the host can understand, InfoConnect comes with several European translation tables. Using these tables, you can swap desired 8-bit characters for unused 7-bit characters when you transmit data to the host, and then swap 7-bit characters for 8-bit characters when you receive data from the host.

You can create your own translation tables or use the translation tables installed with InfoConnect. The default translation tables are installed to: <InfoConnect_user_data_folder> This folder location is configurable using the Data Location tab during installation. The default is C:\Users\username\Documents\Micro Focus\InfoConnect. \Translation.
