[Scribus] Question regarding color management

I am working with Scribus 1.2.3 on Mac OS X and really love this 
program. As I am not a DTP expert I have tried to understand the 
principles of color management, but I am still confused.

My document looks fine on the monitor. Color Management is activated 
using Adobe RGB (1998) for pictures, solid colors and monitor. For the 
printer I am using Europe ISO Coated FOGRA27, which I hope is fine for 
printing in Europe. Once I active the option "Simulate Printer on the 
Screen" all colors shift and look pale.

When I am exporting the PDF, once in RBG and once in CMYK, I can see a 
similar color difference between those files on the screen using my PDF 
viewer. What kind of file should I forward to the printing company?

Does this color difference indicate, that something is going wrong and 
my print will not work?

Thank you for any help you can give me.
