One way I could think of is a kludge, but it'd probably work. Ditch the columns and use two-column tables with no visible borders. You can then put the heading above the table (or even in the table with a merged cell across the top) and put both the English and Spanish header on the same line, using tabs to make the header line up with the table columns. Don't know if it would work if the headings were in separate cells, but you could give that a try, too. You'd probably need to dink around with the tab stops in the TOC style.

YMMV - waking up after a night without enough sleep, so my apologies if this one doesn't work out in practice.
