"Cannot transliterate" error

By: Ben Matterson

Abstract: A possible reason for getting a "Cannot transliterate character between character sets"

Question:

What does the error "Cannot transliterate character between character sets" mean?

Answer:

Most likely it means that there is a character set specified for the column or a default character set specified for the database, and you have not specified that same character set on the client that is connected to the database.
