Nimbuzz Mobile gets Arabic Language Support

You asked. We listened, and added Arabic language support to Nimbuzz Mobile for Symbian phones!

If you have Arabic as a default language on your Symbian mobile phone you can update Nimbuzz and it will automatically install in Arabic, complete with text displayed from right to left.

As this is our first try with Arabic language support, we would like to get your feedback. Please leave a comment below and tell us what you think?

!too Arabic in it leave can You

Hint: read the last sentence from right to left, makes more sense!  ;)

  1. Can you listen to my demands? :) can you add all the 26 official Indian regional languages to Nimbuzz mobile for all platforms next time. Lol :d :d :d

  2. Leeve what you’re seeking here is too much. :d But i belive, atleast they will add Hindi in near future. :d :)

  3. Well the new version does some justice to Semic Language (Right to left – Arabic,Hebrew),
    When even the English version shows Hebrew and Arabic correctlly, even when using English and Hebrew in the same chat screen.
    Unfortunately, Some communities suffer from the new changes, as Hebrew text transforms into Question Marks on every attempt to tap into FACEBOOK chat, both on Symbian and PC version…
    Please fix this major problem :(
    Thanks in advance

  4. Hello,

  5. If i am not wrong.i belive, plethora of Indians use Nimbuzz. Why it is bitter for you guys to release a Nimbuzz compatible with Hindi language?

  6. Hello, Thanks for all your comments and feedback!

    @Ramzy: iPhone does not support Arabic itself, so we cannot do it as well, we will study the possinility to support it as soon as it is available on the iPhone.

  16. I installed the latest version on my Omnia. It will display the proper arabic text when I get a text chat message from any of my yahoo messanger contacts (at the contact page), but once I go into the chat screen, the arabic text change into ??????? characters only. That is a problem I see when the arabic characters are sent to my mobile in the wrong encoding format.

    My phone fully support arabic, I can read and write and also browse internet pages …

    With the knowledge that there are many accounts in Arabic
    Ask the team to allow the work of the accounts in Arabic
    Include Arabic characters
    And symbols such as these: ♥ ° ° ► ☼ ۩ ↓ ↑ ░ ∫
    Thank you very much

    we will consider implementing this possibility.

  31. how can i change my username?my username is revendouz and i want to change it to harbyhordun. I will be glad if u can do it for me

  32. @abbey
    You can change your alias, (alias is the nickname that the other people can see when they talk to you) but not your username (the one that people uses to add you as a contact)

    If you want to change your nickname you can go to menu > account settings > and change it there.

  33. @sajid
    The application will install on the default device language you are using.

  34. @jasna
    Currently is not possible to create an account which contains non alphanumerical characters.

  35. @omarpop23

  36. Pls alow to make stylish ids and arabic ids i have seen most peoples usin stylish ids and they sell them as well.:) thanks. Please reply back.

  37. @M.k – We no longer support creation of Arabic usernames on Nimbuzz. The usernames which you are referring to must have been created long time back. We only support creation of alphanumeric usernames now.

  38. Nimbuzz has been asked by Skype to remove support for all Skype services, effective October 31st, 2010 after this date, Skype will no longer be accessible via Nimbuzz.

    The move is understood to be in line with Skype’s mandate to disconnect with all third party VOIP services ahead of its impending IPO. While we don’t agree with Skype’s business strategy to isolate its customers by disconnecting with Nimbuzz, their decision does not effect how people can communicate with Nimbuzz. Users can still call chat and message for free, and use NimbuzzOut for cheap international calls to mobile phones and landlines, or connect with friends and family on other networks, including Facebook, Yahoo, Windows Live Messenger (MSN), AIM, GoogleTalk, MySpace, Gadu-Gadu, and Hyves.

    Nimbuzz is all for openness and mobile freedom. Nimbuzz’s service is otherwise business as usual with users still being able to enjoy the same beloved communications features as before.

    You can find more information about it on our Blog:

  39. @jabir – You can update the arabic language on your Nimbuzz application by following this path: Phone Setup>Personalization>Language

  40. @hussam – Currently, it is not possible to create a Nimbuzz account where username contains non alphanumerical characters. Nimbuzz only support usernames with alphanumeric characters.

  41. @eaglexx – We do not support the creation of Nimbuzz Id’s that contain non alphanumerical characters. Make sure you use the alphabet and/or number for your username.

  42. @mohamed – We request you to send your query directly to with your account details since, this issue requires further follow ups. We will respond back to your query within 48 business hours.
