If you are using a database driver, make sure you have the appropriate driver. Not all drivers support Non-english characters on your Engligh OS. Definitely no ODBC drivers.

What is your database's character set?  

SELECT parameter, value
  FROM v$nls_parameters
 WHERE parameter = 'NLS_CHARACTERSET'
