    You should try setting your charset to UTF8 in your language setting.

      you should properly set character encoding for source and target db on impex config .. you should also take care of language HTML charset defined on language settings

        You're telling vBulletin to show Arabic in a character set that doesn't contain Arabic letters. You're using an English language package and that won't work.

        As stated above, you need to find and use an Arabic language package and set the Character encoding to UTF-8.
