(UPDATED)

 

So i figured out how to edit the game subtitles, but the problem is, when i type anything in arabic text in place of the original english text, the creation tool converts it to some symbols, i don't know why. . . 

 

any one knows how to fix this?.

Thats an interesting one, and yes i think the game has to recognize the format of the text, as in it needs to be programmed to recognize the symbols/language. Sure the text editor can show the symbols/language in the editor but the game cant transalate it if it doesn't exist i would suppose.

It has always pained me that the common markets are always english/latin based, and i feel for those who have to miss out on the games/products affected. Like i can understand from a business point of view that it is not worth as much to provide to the developing markets, but it is still such a shame.

Id be interested to hear if there was a solution to this within/for Skyrim/Gamebyro at least.

To get non-English language text to display in-game, the game needs to be aware of those particular characters.  Not all fonts include all characters.  To change this one would need to change the font that is displayed in-game.  There are some instructions on how to do that here.  Beyond changing the font, the text would need to be changed as well to read appropriately since not all languages have a direct correlation between characters.

 

Please note, I have not tested the process described on the linked mod.  Nor am I certain that simply changing the font will resolve it, but it is a good place to start.
