But letters are not only A-Z latin characters, it could be any kind of letter from any language.

For example, you can have:

@startuml
skinparam handwritten true
skinparam backgroundColor #EEEBDC

actor 使用者
participant "頭等艙" as A
participant "第二類" as B
participant "最後一堂課" as 別的東西

使用者 -> A: 完成這項工作
activate A

A -> B: 創建請求
activate B

B -> 別的東西: 創建請求
activate 別的東西
別的東西 --> B: 這項工作完成
destroy 別的東西

B --> A: 請求創建
deactivate B

A --> 使用者: 做完

Charset

The default charset used when reading the text files containing the UML text description is system dependent.

Normally, it should just be fine, but in some case, you may want to the use another charset. For example, with the command line:

java -jar plantuml.jar -charset UTF-8 files.txt
Or, with the ant task:
<!-- Put images in c:/images directory -->
<target name="main">
  <plantuml dir="./src" charset="UTF-8" />
</target>
Depending of your Java installation, the following charset should be available: ISO-8859-1, UTF-8, UTF-16BE, UTF-16LE, UTF-16.
