my assumption as well.  There is no reasonable way to translate a 
Mathematica /Maple program which heavily depends on the programming 
language semantics into ML or OpenMath and read it in to the other 
system and expect it to work.  It is not impossible, though:  one could 
write a Mathematica system evaluator in Maple, or a Maple system 
evaluator in Mathematica, and have the "content" part of the ML or 
OpenMath entirely encode the program as a string.

This is akin to exercises that computer science students sometimes 
embark on .  Like writing a Lisp system in Java or a Java system in 
Lisp.  Or both :)

In the unlikely event that the original poster just wants to be able to 
translate sin(x) into Sin[x], that should work via MathML.
