Since you apparently have a multi-byte code page, SBDATACONN will not do anything for you. Look at MBDATACONN and ENCODING=MBCS in the Communications Server IP User's Guide manual. One code page could be utf-16, but you need to research and find out which code page you want to use on the mainframe. (A Google search with z/OS Arabic code page returns 187,000 hits).

It probably won't require you to build a translation table unless you are using unusual character mappings.
