I did a quick check on wikipedia, wiktionary and google, and couldn't
find "traduction" as an English word.
I also asked a few native speakers which told me it didn't exist as far
as they knew.

So I assumed it either isn't one or that it has little enough usage that
a great amount of people wouldn't consider it to be.

I suppose I was wrong then.
Still, I think using "translation" would be clearer.
