Good day!
 I need the Arabic alphabet to Unicode and ANSI encodings.
 Maybe someone knows where to find these things?

Sorry for a trivial Answer but it looks like you asked for it — look at your Question. Can anyone understand what exactly you need? It's not obvious to me that you understand it yourself, but it looks like you're confused about how Unicode works. ANSI is ANSI, it has nothing to do with Arabic (even if some of the code points make sense in some pre-Unicode Arabic encodings but — they are obsolete now).

So —[^]. You will find everything. If something is not clear, please ask another Question.

This is great. My initial idea was to decipher the abbreviation but something stopped me. An now we know the background! Thank you very much. :-)

You use SDK's WideCharToMultiByte() & MultiByteToWideChar() with the proper codepage specification to convert between UNICODE & ANSI with upper 128 characters specific to the codepage [language] in the call.

For example one can go back and forth between UNCODE and Arabic by specifying CP=1256.

See this link for other copepage ID's for other languages.[^]

Hope this helps!
