With any Android smartphone, there are a variety of languages available on the device that you can choose from. When you buy from the UK the default language is English but there are a whole variety of other languages you can choose from (French, Spanish, German and many more).
However, the likes of Arabic, Hebrew and Russian can often be left out. With the Xperia S, whilst you do not get the option to have the menus in Arabic or Hebrew, you can have the keyboard and writing language in Hebrew, Arabic and Russian as well as many others.
