@joergHi, opened your file and I didn't have the font so it substituted one. Rendered correctly. I recall that Mac and VW may have issues with a few fonts, Jim mentioned it the other day. Try another regular font from the VW library and see if you get the same issue,

Also, go to Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences > Display > Edit Font Mappings on both your 2016 and 2017 licenses and make sure they are mapped the same way, this sometimes doesn't migrate properly between versions with some font types.

After switching to Arial, if I create a new viewport, it works fine, but the old converted viewports still do not display the text properly. If recreating the viewports after selecting a supported font works in your document let me know, otherwise make sure to get in touch directly with technical support and have them take a look. If they can confirm this as a conversion issue it can be filed as a bug.

@joergHi, Just noticed that your Sheet layer DPI is set to 72, bump it up to 200 and see if the result is better.
