3DGURU, I granted you editing rights. It seems there have been already efforts to translate wiki to Arabic (http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Main_Page.ar). Read the instructions that are available and see how translating of pages has been generally made. Of course Felix’s advice is good and valid.

Translating user interface would be hard as Blender does not have proper BIDI support needed for Arabic. This might require some serious rework of the current system. Please search Blender mailing list archives for more information about this issue.

When translating a page you need to use .ar (Arabic) suffix on the new pages you create. Otherwise you may accidentally overwrite the original English pages.

I am not so sure about formatting. Perhaps you can find some wiki that has formatting the way you like and mimic that?
