What languages does the TextMagic SMS software support?

The TextMagic SMS gateway supports Unicode, so it supports all the languages that are covered by it.
Unicode covers all languages written in Latin, Arabic, Armenian, Bengali, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Syriac, Thaana, Devanagari, Gurmukhi, Oriya, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Cherokee, Canadian, Mongolian, Han (Korean, Japanese and Chinese), Katakana, Yi and several other scripts. You can check out the full list of supported scripts on the site.

Why is the Unicode charset needed for text messaging?

The GSM charset includes a limited number of Latin, Greek and special symbols. In contrast, the Unicode charset includes thousands of writing systems, symbols and punctuation marks used by different languages. Unicode makes it possible to send text messages in any of the world’s languages.

What is the scope of Unicode?

The Unicode charset covers the vast majority of modern and ancient writing systems, technical symbols, punctuation marks and other characters frequently used in written text.

Does Unicode encode SMS languages and scripts?

The Unicode charset encodes symbols on a per-script basis.
This means that there is only one set of defined Latin characters, despite the fact that the script is used for thousands of different alphabets.
The same rule applies for all other languages.

Why is 402 characters the maximum length of Unicode text messages?

Text messages containing SMS Unicode symbols are shorter than GSM-only text messages. That’s because they are concatenated every 67 characters. TextMagic’s SMS software can send a maximum of six SMS parts containing Unicode. This means 6 x 67 = 402 characters.
