How to get English error messages from a localized Sybase version?

ODBC returns for a german Sybase the following message:

ERROR [08001] [Sybase][ODBC Driver][SQL Anywhere]Datenbankserver nicht gefunden

Is it possible through any configuration, that instead the following is returned?

ERROR [08001] [Sybase][ODBC Driver][SQL Anywhere]Database server not found

Use a web service client call to Google Translate, maybe? ( sorry, just being silly :)

I guess


will do the trick. It will set the server's (and eventually the administration tools's) language to English. Newer versions have further options (e.g. settings for current user vs. local machine).

If you just need a client to use a different language, I guess then the LANG connection parameter will do.

AFAIK part of the ODBC messages might be in the language of the operation system (Windows). You may set the language for SQL Anywhere with something like "%SQLANY11%\Bin32\DbLang EN". But that won't change ODBC messages that don't come from the driver, methinks.
