Thanks for the suggestion. I would be happy to use pandoc.

I tried it and it works well for quotes (double and single). But the
apostrophe only is correctly treated if I convert to LaTeX/PDF. (That's
because LaTeX transforms the "typewriter apostrophe" into the correct
typographic apostrophe.)

From:

 #+LANGUAGE: de
 #+OPTIONS: ':t
 #+OPTIONS: toc:nil
 It's a 'test'.

I get for html/odt:

 It's a ‚test‘.

But I should get:

 It’s a ‚test‘.

Directly using the org export I get:

 It’s a ’test’.

So with pandoc and the Lua filter the single quotes are correct, with
the direct export from org the apostrophe is correct.

Is there a way with pandoc to get correct quotes and apostrophes?

Thanks again!

Andreas
