Actually there are some translations stored into the AD ldap tree. You 
can see for instance the translation for brazilian portuguese (OS 
language code 0416) for the translation of computador :

You can even find some Chinese characters in that CN=DisplaySpecifiers 
container :-) Actually I became aware of that curiosity three or four 
years ago when I had a encoding issue, but in my case it was messing up 
the replication process altogether (but that was a long long time ago).

Nowadays you shouldn't have any issue with encoding while doing 
replication. Could you check if you haven't played with unix charset or 
dos charset in your smb.conf file?
