Obviously, without the appropriate font being installed ArtWorks has 
no chance of displaying the text correctly.

However, even if you had the font, that would not help at the moment 
because text import in the current ArtWorks 2.8 pre-release is very 
basic (see the documentation). In the full release version the PDF 
importer will try to make use of installed fonts.
