How can I send with Greek or Arabic characters?

To send with Arabic characters, you will need to convert your text into Unicode. If using our Batch Sender service, we can automatically convert your Arabic characters to Unicode for you by simply selecting the ‘Unicode’ option. Please also ensure that you make note of the characters limit change when sending using Unicode.

You can send upper case Greek letters using plain text (see more information here on our GSM Encoding page on our Glossary). However, lower case characters will require the entire message to be converted into Unicode.

To read more about Unicode, you can find more information on our dedicated Glossary page.
