Unicode support for the SDK

We've recently encountered problems with using non-Western languages in the SDK, essentially Chinese, Arabic, Greek etc. Apparently the SDK does not support unicode characters and relies on ASCII character code pages with a defined character set (Please correct me if I got it wrong). This makes labelling features difficult as the character set has to be set for each object that you want to label.
Are there any plans for supporting unicode characters in the near future (ie if it not already supported)? Thanks

    You are correct that Unicode text display is not currently supported. There are not any short-term plans to add Unicode text support, although we will eventually add it.

    Thanks,
