    Hi Uday,

    Pentaho Data Integration uses UTF-8 (Unicode) internally and this indeed supports Arabic codepages.
    When you read text files, Excel files or indeed read from a database, a conversion is taking place from the source locale to UTF-8. Make sure that in the relevant steps (or database dialog) you specify the correct option to describe what the source locale (codepage) looks like.

    No extra files are required as far as I can tell.
