I apologize for the non-Emacs solution, but you can use pandoc in
combination with the following Lua filter to get the desired result:
https://github.com/pandoc/lua-filters/tree/master/pandoc-quotes.lua
For LaTeX output, you can also pass -Vcsquotes as a parameter to force
pandoc to make use of the csquotes package. Both should give you the
desired results.
