You can use \replaceword:

   \starttext
   
   \setuppapersize[A6][A6]
   
   \mainlanguage[en]
   
   \replaceword[hyphenations][steffen][steff{-}{}{}en]
   \setreplacements[hyphenations]
   
   english text english text english teste: steffen steffen
   
   \start\language[it]
   italian text italian text italian teste: steffen steffen
   \stop
   
   \stoptext
