When masking data using Talend Data Preparation or the tDataMasking component, each of the characters in the input data is masked to a character from the same character type, within the supported Unicode ranges.

When creating column analyses in Talend Studio, you can use the East Asia Pattern Frequency or East Asia Pattern Low Frequency indicators for Asian characters, to define the content, structure and quality of your data.

The following table describes the supported character types and the related Unicode ranges (version 11.0).

For more information, see the documentation for the Unicode Standard ( and the character code charts (
