Makes sense, thanks for clarifying.
It might be possible to enforce that translation files use the proper character 
(people writing translations for Emacs will be able to rely on an appropriate 
Emacs input method).  Can you confirm that this would sidestep the issue that 
you mentioned earlier?  We'd never have ' where ʼ is meant, and so automatic 
`'-translation wouldn't cause unexpected issues.

(The language that prompted my initial email was unsurprisingly French, which 
uses ' between consecutive characters (it'd be a pain to have to type 
"l%'arrivée d%'un email", and I don't know anyone who types in the proper 
"l’arrivée d’un email", except when their text editor auto-corrects).
