Is there a language package in SAS?

I want to rename some of the variables in english into korean;

data rename1 (RENAME = (lastname = address = 주소 birthdate = 생일));

      set original ;

run;

Apparently SAS does not recognise korean character.  Is there a language package available?

Re: Is there a language package in SAS?

You can read more about multilingual support in the documentation.

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/nlsref/61893/HTML/default/viewer.htm#ov-nls.htm

The only hope would be to set the option VALIDVARNAME=ANY and specify the name as a name literal in the form of a quoted name followed immediately by the letter n.  For example:   'sex'n  'normally invalid name'n

That said perhaps you might have an easier time changing the LABEL of the variable instead of the name?

As Tom said. Give you an example. If your SAS wrer Korean version.
