Send Email to Sms Text Messages - in Any Language

By: Ariel

If you're a foreigner living in another country and want to send a text message in the most convenient and efficient way and in your own language, there are only two ways to do this. The first is of course the traditional method: get out your cell phone and start hammering away at the keypad, but does your cell phone company support Chinese characters or do you have to type out the words in Latin letters? The second, more convenient method is to start typing an SMS text message directly from Outlook, as if you were sending an Email, in your own language, and hit send.

TeleMessage provides a service that allows you to send SMS text messages in any language directly from the Outlook program on your computer. Their service uses Unicode is a character encoding scheme which allows the encoding of characters of all the major world languages, both living and dead, to be encoded in a single character set. The Unicode specification also includes set compression schemes and a vast range of typesetting information required for worldwide locale support.

Advantages of sending Email text messages:

Most of us work in front of a computer all day, or at least part of the day. It is so much easier to just go to your Outlook and type a short email to SMS text message than to take out your cell phone and start typing on small little keys on your cell phone keypad.

What's more convenient is that you can also receive text messages to your inbox.

Sending an SMS text message from a foreign country can be difficult if your mother tongue is Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russain or Greek, but not if the software you've downloaded supports Unicode. When looking for SMS texting software, if you need to send an SMS text message in a foreign language, be sure to choose one like TeleMessage which supports all of the world's major languages. Their SMS text sender will even adapt number calculations to characters in these languages.

The TeleMessage download comes with a toolbar plug-in enabling you to send an SMS text message from the toolbar of your browser.

It integrates with Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express and Lotus Notes

For Business and Individuals, sending Email text messages can save a lot of time and money since bulk SMS text messages take a minute to send. Imagine being able to send holiday greetings to 30 friends or an important message to 200 employees at the touch of a button. So, if it's the Chinese New Year, Ramadan, Hannuka or Diwali, be sure to send your Email to SMS Text Message in the right language.
