Is there anything special I need to do to store test from foreign language like Asian language in my DB? I know to use nchar, nvarchar, and the other 'n' data types.

You should be able to store them in Unicode data type like nvarchar,nchar,ntext. Only thing is it takes 2 bytes/Character.

So all I have to do is make sure the data types are the 'n' sets no other configuration or special coding needs to come in play?
