Currently i am using ArcGIS Editor for open Street map for conversion of OSM file to file Geodatabase. But after conversion geometry is perfect but there is no Unicode data available in the attribute table. Am i missing some thing?

I am particularly interested in the house numbers and buildings names.

The forum on the official esriosmeditor site has this answer:

How can ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap preserve Unicode data?

Good question. The ArcGIS Editor for OSM absolutely supports the Unicode data. However, it is not extracting all of the data into the attribute table by default. To get at these additional values, run the OSM Attribute Selector tool and select the values of interest. Then you should be able to see these values in the table.
