Yes, you can.  You need to modify the file dlls/shell32/shell32_Es.rc. 
Look at dlls/shell32/shell32_En.rc.  The end of the file as a stringtable
with the comment /* shell folder path default values */.  Copy this
stringtable to shell32_Es.rc, and translate the names appropriately. 
Recompile and reinstall.  Please send a patch with the updated
translations to wine-patches at, too.
