How to move volume data from one vol lang to another?

SAN-NAS
Hi,

I would like to move data from a cifs volume with wrong language settings to new volume with correct language settings.

If I use snap mirror or vol copy then both sides should have same language. Only option I see is - ndmpcopy or snap vault which works at file level.

As per NetApp best practice, you should never change vol lang once data is written.

Can someone please give some input here. Thanks!!

I'm not changing language on the existing volume , I want to move data from one (wrong) to another (correct). Bcos as per NetApp best practices one should not change volume language once data is written.

Does it matter , say en_us.utf-8 to Pl.Utf-8?
