    \setupnote[translaternote][textstyle=\bf, textcolor=green]

As far as I know, left and right arent’t options in \setupnote.

They don’t work (I wonder what might they be useful for). But Hans or
Wolfgang know better.

I guess you have to avoid defining commentnote based on endnote.

You may always do the following:

        [authornote, endnote, commentnote, footnote, translaterpnote]

Then, place the notes in the right order. But in that case, only using
one kind of notes may be less problematic.

I hope it helps,
