As seen in new flex version, it is supported for CSV, XLSX export, but for PDF the character was not recognized in different language other than English.
See demo here:

Hello Maya,
We have done a research on the issue with exporting Hebrew into PDF. After the research, we realized that the library which performs the export does not support the Hebrew symbols. The dev team had tried to implement some workarounds still, it did not solve the problem. For now, all possible solutions require significant time on full reworking the module which is responsible for the PDF export. Therefore we have to inform you that we will not be able to add the Hebrew support for PDF export in the nearest time. In such case, please try to use the other types of export which support the Hebrew language.

Hello, Maya,
We are glad to announce that exporting the Unicode characters to PDF is now supported.
It means that from now on you can save PDF reports in Chinese, Arabic or any other language without any problems.
To do this, you only need to provide an appropriate TTF font file while using exportTo() API call.
Also, we have prepared a list of ready-to-use Google Noto Fonts that you can use to support almost any language in the world.
Please note, that only fonts in standard TTF format are supported.
Example of usage:

flexmonster.exportTo('pdf', {
  fontUrl: ''

Check out an updated localization demo on JSFiddle.
The fix is available in the 2.7.7 version of Flexmonster.
You are welcome to update the component.
Please let us know if everything works fine.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards,
