Sending SMS in foreign languages for example Arabic, Greek, Hebrew etc.

Written by Marinda Stuiver

Mobile phone penetration is increasing globally. Withrepparttar increase in handsets, being able to communicate withrepparttar 105119 handset owners in their own language is something that is becoming increasingly important.

The first question that comes to mind is how it works when foreign languages are sent to mobiles from a web site. Based onrepparttar 105120 fact that computers fundamentally just deal with numbers, letters and characters are stored using a unique number for each and inrepparttar 105121 past these unique numbers had to be assigned throughrepparttar 105122 use of encoding systems. As a result hundreds of different encoding systems existed, none compatible with each other and none of them containing enough characters to deal with all languages. All this changed withrepparttar 105123 invention of Unicode. With Unicode one number for each letter has been assigned (a standard has been set) and it is network, platform and language independent. The emergence of Unicode standards and tools allowed web platform owners and developers to develop additional tools which enables end users to send sms in their own language.

These applications are especially important inrepparttar 105124 Middle East (Arabic), Far East (Chinese, Taiwanese, Hindi etc.) and European countries where normal English characters cannot be used to communicate in data format for example Greece, Finland, Norway - just to name a few.
