 Using the German Character Set

In MySQL 5.1, character set and collation are specified separately. This means that if you want German sort order, you should select the latin1 character set and either the latin1_german1_ci or latin1_german2_ci collation. For example, to start the server with the latin1_german1_ci collation, use the --character-set-server=latin1 and --collation-server=latin1_german1_ci options.

For information on the differences between these two collations, see Section 10.9.2, “West European Character Sets”.
