Collation for non-English language in S/4HANA


As checked, SAP HANA only support Unicode character. And collation (sorting) syntax for non-English is not supported.

I am now working in Thailand. So Thai language would be the secondary language in this system.

In standard Thai work sorting (based on National Dictionary), we do sorting based on accent sounds (meaning : we're not using binary sort)

In other database system like MS SQL Server, Oracle, SAP ASE they support Thai Dictionary sorting in the system.

Question is , Do we have customization for collation/sorting in Thai (or other non-English languages) in S/4HANA ?

Remarks: I'm talking about how we sort the data records. Not for system language supplement (GUI menu, dialog messages, etc.)
