SQL SERVER – 2005 Collation Explanation and Translation

I says in words like ‘Dictionary order, case-insensitive, uppercase preference’. I was confused for little while as I am used to read collation like ‘SQL_Latin1_General_Pref_Cp1_CI_AS_KI_WI’. I did some research and find following link which explains many of the SQL SERVER 2005 collation.
