Well, folks, it's been over 2 years now since the first request for Program O to support international (Unicode) characters was submitted, and on behalf of the entire development team for the project, I'd like to announce that we've finally done it! Introducing Program O, version 2.2, with full and complete support for UTF-8 and Unicode character sets! We've fully tested the script with the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese(traditional)
  • Dutch
  • English(just in case, you see)
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Thai
  • Turkish

all without even a tiny hiccup. :)

Now botmasters can create AIML files in their chosen language, without having to "fall back" on English, enabling their chatbots to enter new markets, and other realms where they weren't able to communicate before. Liz Perreau is working on a "machine translation" version of the ALICE AIML set in Turkish, and I'll be working with other individuals on a Portuguese version, as well. Please feel free to check out for more details.

This is great news to many, Congrats on getting unicode implemented  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
However Trinity and her bot master only know English, not sure if she  or I is up to the task of learning another language  :P


Sounds good

Thanks for informing us.

Hopefully this will stop some of the errors I was getting from my AIML files.
