Simplest way is to replace strings.xml and the fonts, just make sure you keep a copy of the originals.
Italian and some other translations are done this way.

French and German translations are done as a mod.
But as a mod I can't seem to override the fonts, so when I do my Chinese translation we have to manually replace the fonts anyway (as of X:CE ver 0.34.2).

Anyway, the biggest problem may be Xenonauts does not seem to support Arabic.
I can make a font that includes Arabic, and it can show Arabic text, but do it left to right - instead of right to left.
I can't read Arabic, but I know that's a problem.  Hope you've got some translator's trick to overcome it.

Otherwise, tough luck...
