I saw this bug on Arabic and Hebrew languages

Unfortunately currently RTL languages are not supported. The reason is that the PDF toolkit we are using (reportlab) does not support RTL languages properly. I don't know if the state of wkhtmltopdf has improved. Using wkthmltopdf is no option at the moment anyways since it uses html as the input, but the base for the PDFs we are generating is mediawiki markup.
