Hmm. Are there any translation systems that do that?
If that's ever implemented it would be good to follow some kind of
standard. Generally I don't think it would be possible without changing
the text in the source.

I would say to just try and make the translation as close as possible
without getting too specific about the meaning. Also Abschicken is a
cool word.
