 Hi iman
You can use the 880 field for writing the vernicular of any field you want in arabic and use the subfield 6 to link the to fields you can take a look on any arabic record in the library of congress to under stand what i mean
After that we can add new search index 
In zebra with 880 field
All best

Subject: [Koha] cataloging books in other languages 

We have several books in Arabic and other languages that we like it to be
displayed in its original language in the catalog.

We want to enter the author name in English and display it in the other
language as well and make it searchable

My question is how we can display the title and other information in its
original language and it will be searchable.

Thank you in advance for your help
