AFAIK UTF-8 should be supported in all/most compliant devices (I think
I've read somewhere that it's in the according Java standard - but I
can't find it now).
At least on the phones I own (Sony Ericsson W800i and K610i) utf-8 works
fine. I tried to load vocabulary files with Norwegian, Spanish, Russian
and Arabic characters, and as far as I can tell, they all look fine.

The only problem I experienced so far, is with some phonetic script
characters (IPA), which aren't diplayed correctly at the moment. But
there might be workarounds for this (using a special bitmap font...).
