Connectors accept up to 90 characters due to technical aspects, and is not meant to be used to insert beyond 30 characters. One of such aspects is the fact that some characters in other languages take more than 1 byte, hence it is extended to 90 bytes for connectors.
For example Japanese, Chinese and Korean can occupy more bytes depending on the character. It can be from 2 - 4 bytes
UTF-8 uses 1 byte to represent characters in the ASCII set, two bytes for characters in several more alphabetic blocks,
and three bytes for the rest of the BMP. Supplementary characters use 4 bytes.
UTF-16 uses 2 bytes for any character in the BMP, and 4 bytes for supplementary characters.
UTF-32 uses 4 bytes for all characters.
There are string to byte counters calculators online that can help assist you with calculations of characters for each language [These tools are not supported by SAP]
