Wirefast UTF8 Support for extended SMS character set released


Wirefast is please to announce that it now supports an extended character set for SMS

Typically an SMS text message contains up to 160 characters from the GSM alphabet. This alphabet knows all Latin characters, digits and a few special characters.

Languages such as Chinese, Cyrillic, Arabic or Thai contain characters outside this alphabet and must be sent using the Unicode standard. This means the Unicode standard enables you to send SMS text messages using characters from any written language.
