Suppose you are working in an environment in which your server supports various languages
and you want to find out what is the current language of server.

You can use the following methods:

Method 1: Use system function @@language

select @@language

The system function @@language contains the name of the current language of the server

Method 2 : Use sys.syslanguages view

select name from sys.syslanguages
where langid=@@langid

The system function @@langid will have the id for current language

OUTPUT
