size_t al_ustr_encode_utf16(const ALLEGRO_USTR *us, uint16_t *s,
   size_t n)
Introduced in 5.0.0

Encode the string into the given buffer, in UTF-16. Returns the number of bytes written. There are never more than n bytes written. The minimum size to encode the complete string can be queried with al_ustr_size_utf16. If the n parameter is smaller than that, the string will be truncated but still always 0 terminated.
