According to the APA style guide:

"If the original version of a non-English article is used as the
source, cite the original version. Give the original title and, in
brackets, the English translation."

Other styles might specify differently.

Hans and I are working (furiously) on the new mkiv bibliography
subsystem. We have been discussing language (with Thomas as well). The
title= will be typeset (and hyphenated) according to the language=
field, if present; The rest of the bibliography list ("and", for
example) will be typeset using the document language. A global
bibliography rendering option can modify this choice.
