Great work.
I'd comment some issues about the template, if you don't mind.

1. Be careful not to set manually the variable _preferences.language (It should be treated as a read-only variable). You could achieve what you want with config.default_language = "arabic" instead (and don't need the persistent variable, because it's used only the first time the game starts).
2. Also, you have set the None language as "English", but the text in script.rpy is in Arabic (if you select "English" in preferences, you get the Arabic text in the game). Better set the None language as Arabic (then you don't need the config.default_language thing), and add an English translation of the script.rpy.
How to do this:
- Change the word "arabic" in your translation files to "None" (also the name of the folder "arabic" to "None"; this is not necessary, but makes things easier when renpy updates).
- Delete the "_preferences.language" code in script.rpy (it's not needed).
- Change the language selector in screens.rpy: Arabic -> Language(None); English -> Language("english").
- Add an English translation of the script (not really required, because this text will be changed by the game-developer).

thank you for your constructive comment :D
I admit i'm not a programmer, so i had to look at the Japanese translation and hope to mimic that into the other language (arabic) some things worked, some things didn't :oops:
most of the coded changes to the script were given to me by awesome users here for previous versions, i guess things go obsolete very quickly in a growing program like renpy :oops:
