Can anyone provide some advice on the best way to filter foreign languages?

Developing keyword filters for English and other alphabet languages is no problem, but what about Russian, Chinese, Japanese etc?

For example I am looking at a Russian spam message.  The character encoding is windows-1251 and the spam is about ordering a chess board for the upcoming holidays.

At the bottom is says something (thanks Google translate!) about ordering right now by phone.  I'm seeing a lot of mail like this so wanted to develop a keyword filter.

Problem is I have no idea how to filter on these characters.  Here is a snippet from the spam.


I was going to filter on this bit:


How can I get these characters into spamfilter so they match?

As of SpamFilter v4.6.1.119, we added support for unicode characters in the blacklist/whitelists. You are thus able to add this line to your list of keywords to stop emails with that content:
