You should use components supporting unicode.

Use TNTUnicodeControls for building application.
And when you work with components set every component Font.Charset to Arabic. After it your caption on every component will look fine. Else your component`s Charset will default on system. And if your system charset will USA your will see on captions and textas like "abracadabra"

Hi Matrodi
A few days ago I have installed Delphi8. It supports Unicode by default.
