Exporting Arabic script in attribute tables

I have an .mdb dataset whose attributes, and many values for those attributes, are in Arabic. When I try to export this dataset as a shapefile, the table does not convert properly: the Arabic field names are replaced with question marks, and most of the values with zeroes.

 

How can I, from an .mdb file, create a shapefile with Arabic script in its attribute table? Thank you.
