Question on folder sync with "directory name translation"

I've been tasked with migrating a smallish (@90 mailboxes) company from
a linux/dovecot mail server to Office 365, and after experiencing a ton
of issues with Microsoft's native Imap syncing tool, I decided to use
Imapsync, and it is working perfectly.
It has the ability to add a simple regex translation for mapping folders
of different names - mainly used for the special use folders that can
have different names depending on the server/client involved.
Ie, dovecot/Thunderbird use 'Sent', 'Trash' and 'Junk', while
Office65/Outlook use 'Sent Items', 'Deleted Items' and 'Junk Emails'.
So, a few simple regex lines in the ImapSync commandline options and
--regextrans2 's/Sent$/Sent Items/' \
--regextrans2 's/Trash$/Deleted Items/' \
--regextrans2 's/Junk$/Junk Email/' \
I do use a few more to catch a few other cases, but you get the idea.
I'd be surprised if rsync can't do something similar?
