Read chinese problem

I have a problem to read chinese character on linux , the problem is :
we export a file (there are chinese characters inside) from the database to the shell , but we found that we can't read the chinese characters ( all become unreadable words) , maybe it is caused by the linux language setting , could suggest how can I read chinese on the linux shell ? thx.

Since you haven't received a response, I'll suggest that to read Hanzi
in a shell, you will have to have Chinese as your system language. I am not
even positive that you can read Hanzi in a shell. Have you tried one of the
Chinese forums?

Will it not help to read the Chinese characters in an editor? You cannot do
any programming, or write any scripts, in Chinese. So I think maybe it will
help to display the Hanzi in an editor.

Please go into your LQ UserCP (link on the right under My LQ) and enter
your distribution. That will help people who are helping you.
