Which version of yEd was used to create the EPS file in question? If you view the EPS file in a dedicated EPS viewer application (e.g. gv, PDF viewer such as okular or evince usually support EPS, too) is the text mirrored, too?

In any case, yEd uses a third party library for EPS export (FreeHEP VectorGraphics) which is unfortunately no longer maintained by its creators. In other words, if this is a bug in FreeHEP the situation will not improve any time soon.
