Because of the mix of several code pages, the MDMP system requires special preparation and the attention of language experts who read and speak each of the languages currently used. An MDMP system contains many texts that have the same binary codes in the database but belong to different language code pages. Therefore, you cannot simply export and import the MDMP database with Unicode conversion as you can in the Single Code Page system scenario. The export tools cannot determine the language code page automatically. Instead, you must first identify to which language and code page the text data belongs.
