Unicode characters in SMS messages sent from DHIS2

Hi. I wanted to see what people’s mileage was attempting to send SMS messages from the DHIS2 server via Clickatell with non-Latin characters (specifically Nepalese which has been UTF-8 encoded). The SMS when received by a device capable of rendering UTF-8 in this language does not display the characters, but rather the UTF-8 escape sequence as text. Tried to send the same text through Skype (to be sure it was not an operator issue) and it came out fine.

Any ideas?

Best regards,
