most likely your issues are with the "drawing unit" that you have set up in your DWG translator. In the US we end up jumping back and forth (1" or 1') depending on who supplies the dwg drawing and what units they use to do their work.
Try once. Measure in ArchiCAD and use that information to set the scale correct in the translator.

Then import again with the corrected scale settings.

In the metric world, we often use 1mm or 1m as a drawing unit, but this is not always the case.
