I see no reason why you could not authorize a translation to be distributed under a DFSG-free license. You would basically be saying that in all ways the translation embodied the original, you could use those aspects of the original; but the exact original English wording couldn't be duplicated. It wouldn't mean the original was free, but you could translate the Spanish version back to English then.
