If you are reporting in QWeb you can create a translatable template.  In Odoo version 9.0 the will be making it even easier by adding a new t-lang option to the t-call QWeb operator.

What reporting engine do you use?  For RML and webkit, the method setLang() is available to set the language.  If you just want to change the language for one field, put a setLang before it and another after to set it to a different language.  The argument needed is the locale code like 'en_US' or 'zh_CN'.
