Again, if you happen to be on a Mac, you can combine Zotero and BibTeX using 
the excellent Zot2Bib Firefox extension.  This will use the Zotero 
translators, but can be configured to transfer the citations to a BibTeX 
file.  This can be managed with BibDesk, but is also available within Emacs 
and can be used for citations in papers written in Org-mode.  I have started 
using this combo about two years ago and am quite pleased with the results.

All the best,
