It's pretty easy.

Create a new Category Field and prefix its name with the language prefix related and use it for the translated name. For example, pt-category_name.

On your templates, inside categories variable pair, for example:

{if language == "pt"}{pt-category_name}{/if}
{if language == "en"}{category_name}{/if}{!-- being `en` your default language --}
