    It may shock you, but ‘handicap’ is still a very common term in French and Dutch. Probably because the word has no negative associations here (and it was a big improvement to the old terms “invalid” or “less valid”).

    In the Arab world, I’ve seen “determined”, but personally, I’m not feeling this. Not a big fan of “challenged” either, I’m afraid. But of course, I respect people who like to use these terms for themselves.
