It depends which archive pages you're talking about. The table of contents is rebuilt with every message and should be OK. The periodic (monthly) index pages are only rebuilt when a post is added so old periods are not usually updated. The html message pages themselves are never updated.
Thus if you make changes that affect these such as changing the list language, you have to rebuild the archives to update most of the html pages. See
Hmmm, I just regenerated the archives, and the table of contents page looks the same.
As I said above, the table of contents is rebuilt with every message, so rebuilding the archive won't change it unless there were no messages since the language change.
According to the html header, the page is using charset utf-8, so the text is just a lot of symbols. The main list info page has cyrillic characters, but no charset specified in the html. I think what this particular list manager wants is for the archive page to show cyrillic characters - is that possible?
I'm not entirely sure which language he has selected because everything is in the other language (even the output of bin/config_list?), but if I'm reading the cyrillic right then it might be Ukrainian.
If the list language is Ukranian, the character set should be utf-8. One potential issue is that the web server can be overriding this with its own Content-Transfer-Encoding: header that specifies something other than utf-8.
