Here's an idea:

\usemodule [translate]

%% \mainlanguage [nl]

\assigntranslation [en=alpha, nl=beta]\to\TRfoo
\translateinput [foo] [\TRfoo]

\assigntranslation [en=gamma, nl=delta]\to\TRbar
\translateinput [bar] [\TRbar]

\enableinputtranslation

\starttext
  foo bar
\stoptext

It's not a good solution, but it's a start. There's also

  \translate [en=foo, nl=bar]

But I don't know how to combine it with \translateinput. That would
remove the need of the \TR… macros.
