According to the document "Requirements of ABAP Programs in Unicode Systems.pdf":

String processing statements, whose arguments were all interpreted as fields of type C until now, are now divided into statements with character arguments and those with byte arguments.

String processing statements

CLEAR ... WITH

CONCATENATE

CONDENSE

CONVERT TEXT ... INTO SORTABLE CODE

OVERLAY

REPLACE

SEARCH

SHIFT

SPLIT

TRANSLATE ... TO UPPER/LOWER CASE

TRANSLATE ... USING

The arguments of these instructions must be single fields of type C, N, D, T or STRING or purely character-type structures. There is a syntax or runtime error if arguments of a different type are passed. A subset of this function is provided with the addition IN BYTE MODE for processing byte strings – that is, operands of type X or XSTRING. A statement such as CONCATENATE a x b INTO c is thus no longer possible when a, b, and c are all character-type, but x is of type X.

TRANSLATE ... CODEPAGE ...

TRANSLATE ... NUMBER FORMAT ...

The above statements are not allowed in Unicode programs. Instead, you can use the new conversion classes:

CL_ABAP_CONV_IN_CE:

Reads data from a container and converts it to the system format. You can also fill structures with data.

CL_ABAP_CONV_OUT_CE:

Converts data from the system format to an external format and writes it to a container.

CL_ABAP_CONV_X2X_CE:

Converts data from one external format to another.

Hope it helps,

Chang
