Double Byte enabled

Question for y'all:

Does the term "double-byte enabled" accurately describe Unicode-based apps?
Seems antiquated and inaccurate.

I'm editing a document which says something about making sure applications
are double-byte enabled, and I'd like to come up with a more appropriate and
current phrase.

I assume there is a better term, but I can't think of what has really
replaced it. Perhaps even "multi-byte enabled"?

Any ideas?
