I hang on a text part in fblangref25-datatypes.xml ->
Floating-point data types are examples of data stored in the DBMS with the
precision matching the scale of the number.
What is the scale of number? Please make this clear. Otherwise I don't get the
just a question for German-speaking people. How would you translate COLLATION
or COLLATE? Do we translate this or leave it as it is? Currently I use the
German term "Sortierreihenfolge" but I don't know if this is OK and
understandable. So what is your opinion on this?
