For Linux etc. users there are several independent programs that will
translate various strings to other strings, including at the
simplest level sed and awk and for more complex matters there are
lex and yacc and their modern equivalents flex and bison. It may
be that these tools can be used outside of Scribus to do the
conversions you desire. This may save you reinventing the wheel.
All these tools are well documented.
