Hi,

I think the following can solve your problem, but I don’t know whether it is 
the optimal way to achieve what you are looking for: in any case you can play 
with the dimensions used here as an example, in order to find the correct 
location.

Best regards: OK
%% begin rotated-text.tex
\define\myrotatedtext{%
        \rotate[rotation=90]{%
        \scale[width=50mm]{\startcolor[darkred] my rotated text\stopcolor}
        }
        }
        
\definelayer[myrotatedlayer]
        [width=30mm,
        height=100mm,
        repeat=yes]

\setlayer[myrotatedlayer]
        [x=180mm,y=100mm]
        {\myrotatedtext}
                 

\setupbackgrounds[page][background=myrotatedlayer]

\starttext

\input knuth

\stoptext
%% end rotated-text.tex
