Here is the information that we have gathered for people who have wrongly lost their titles from transferring. This only applies to people who transferred after they first awarded titles and then lost it when Blizzard redid the titles. If you transferred before the first round of title rewards then it seems that you are out of luck.

It appears that the best course of action is to submit a petition. If we find out any more info to help we will let you know.

Here are some blue responses on the EU customer service forums.
How to submit:

Official Blizzard Quote:

Yes, a little bit of news.

We may be able to assist you. However, to have it looked into, please submit a ticket with the following information:

- Your original name and realm
- The name of the Arena team you earned the title from
- Your new name and realm, and when you transferred

This only applies to players who lost an already awarded Season 4 Gladiator title after a character transfer.
Whether or not you are qualified:

Hi guys,

I'd like to chip in with the procedure the support team is following at the moment to address this issue.

If you were entitled to an Arena title this season, and it either has been lost after transfer or was not awarded at all after transfer, then you should contact us in-game regarding this. We will then pass this onto our technical team for action, and if it is verified that your title loss was due to an unintentional problem then you will be awarded your title as soon as we can run the script to do so.

Please note that if our tech team establish that you are not entitled to a title, that this decision is final, and the Game Master team cannot offer any further assistance.
Here is an email Redundant got after submitting his petition.

This is the last weekend of rated arena until December 16th. Be ready to level quickly as the next season starts just a month after launch. Thanks to Wildo for the news.

Just a note, come launch we will be redoing all the old talents, macros, and strategies. If you have any ideas on how you would like them to be changed , please leave us a note in site feedback. Thanks.

Official Blizzard Quote:

We wanted to remind everyone that Arena season 4 is coming to a close. During next Tuesday's maintenance, all arena teams, as well as ratings, will be wiped and arena charter NPCs disabled. Thus, arena points will, unfortunately, not be rewarded for rated games played this week.  

The next Arena season will begin on December 16th, and once that happens players at level 70 will be able to participate in rated matches against level 70 opponents and gain Arena points for item purchases but will not count towards the end of season rewards. At the same time, level 80 players will be able to compete in rated arena matches where they can gain arena points which can be used to purchase level 80 arena gear, as well as compete for end-of-season rewards. Additionally, players at level 70 will continue to be able to play skirmish Arena matches against other level 70 opponents even after Wrath of the Lich King launches. It's also important to note that two new skirmish brackets (71-75, 76-80) will be available for players who wish to hone their Arena skills while leveling in Northrend.

We got word from Nethera and it looks like the two new arenas, Dalaran Sewers and the Ring of Valor, are officially in the Skirmish Arena rotation. So, if you're curious, go give them a whirl.

Official Blizzard Quote:

With the latest patch release, we’ve added two new arenas: the Dalaran Sewers and the Ring of Valor in Orgrimmar. These arenas offer new obstacles and challenges for strategy savvy players. The arenas have been added to the random rotation and are accessible via the queue system as Skirmishes. For more information on these two new arenas, please visit http://www.worldofwa...er/11/arena.xml . Both Dalaran Sewers and the Ring of Valor will also be available for tournament play during Arena Season 5.
