How to get a translated record?

This code returns a string in english:

description = (pool.get('ir.model.data')

However, it's translated to spanish in the module, and it appears correctly translated in the UI.

How can I get that string translated?

Note that I cannot use from openerp.tools import _ because this code runs as an automated action, in a sandboxed environment. See the whole code if you need to.
