Hello John,

This is the job of offset ICC profiles to convert in CMYK, so don't worry.
Nevertheless, you need to have a strong color management, i.e activating 
the output preview in both Gimp and Scribus, both set on your SWOP 
profile. Be careful with this profile too: it's made to print on US 
printers, and doesn't manage a good TAC.

Have fun!
