Use Translation Workbench

The translation workbench allows you to create translations for the customization you’ve made to your Salesforce.com organization. Everything from custom picklist values to custom fields can be translated so your global users can use all of Salesforce.com in their language.

Setup → Translation workbench

  1. Add your target language in Translation Settings
  2. Add picklist value for your language using translate section: https://www.greytrix.com/blogs/salesforce/2017/03/28/translate-picklist-into-multiple-languages/
