I'm using entity_translation to translate both nodes and taxonomy terms and, from what I've read, entity_translation will be packaged in D8 core for translations. My taxonomy terms are translated properly everywhere without needing to use i18n_taxonomy, but NOT in views exposed filters.
I will propose a patch which uses entity_label instead of term names to display term labels in exposed filters.
