Hi,
I have NLS_CHARACTERSET set to WE8ISO8859P1 and NLS_NCHAR_CHARACTERSET is AL16UTF16.

I want to convert the nls characgterset to UTF8 to support multi language and wonder whether I have to convert the NLS_NCHAR_CHARACTERSET also to UTF8 or i can leave as it is.

Thanks,
GK

Don't care about NLS_NCHAR_CHARACTERSET, don't convert it.
It is more likely you'll never use it and AL16UTF16 contains all what AL32UTF8 contains.
Use AL32UTF8 and not UTF8 that is no more supported from 10g.

Regards
Michel
