Translate values are treated like any other comparable and upgradable object. They would only be "overridden" if you set the project flags to only take values from the new version.
A word of caution about using the web interface to change translate values...
At last year's Oracle conference, I recall someone saying that it was a bad idea to update translate values through the web interface. He said the translate values' object version numbers don't get updated properly when they are updated through the web, which then causes issues with caching.
I have no personal experience with this issue, but the person who said this is a respected PeopleSoft blogger, frequent Open World presenter, and Oracle Ace. So I took his comments seriously.

Subject: PeopleSoft DBA Forum Upgrade Impact - Translate values entered online
Do translate values get overridden during upgrade? If translate values are not tracked in app designer projects, do we have to re-enter them manually?
We would like to give our BA's ability to add translate values through the web interface.
