Post Support Arabic in SA-MP!

Hey guys,
I'm playing SA-MP around 4 years (don't look at the registeration date - cauze I have another users).
I was wondering why SA-MP doesn't support the 'Arabic' Language in-game.
while trying to write in-game/pawn it show a 'gibrish' stuff and a lot of complicated symbols.
I'm asking you to add the 'Arabic' Language to the game and supporting it, because there is a lot of Arabic gamers will join us if you support the language.
if you need an information about supporting the language, I will help.
Thanks!

Pawn only supports UTF-32 character encoding. For Arabic you will need UTF-8.

I sure hope they plan to give our foreign brothers some equal love
Nothing quite like translating line after line of text only to find out its gibberish in-game

I don't know about you but I can make my way around russian sites/games well enough but SA:MP just spits out useless text when anyone uses their keyboard

The language barrier be damned

I heard UTF-8 is supported as well, hope that the SAMP Team will think about it, I've seen that 15% of the SA:MP Players are Arabs..
