Is there a commonly used term for the result of a reduction operation?

"reductant" does not quite sound right...

In the context of reducing one language to another, I have only ever seen this referred to using phrases such as "the problem being reduced to", "the target of the reduction", etc. I don't think there is a single word for it—certainly not one that would be universally understood.
