[sword-devel] language of module descriptions

Being an English speaker it wasn't obvious, but all the works (also
known as modules) descriptions are in English. Surely the descriptions
should be in the language of the people who will use the works?
Here's what I suggest. For any new modules or modules that are changed,
or modules that people want to change this for:
make a new Description in the language of the module
rename the old conf field to Description_en
make sure both descriptions mean the same thing ;)
This mechanism allows descriptions to be made in other languages if
people really want e.g. Description_de
The Description_en is probably necessary as I guess not all frontends
would be able to handle unicode descriptions.
It is not a priority to change old modules but I think it would be a
good policy for new modules.
Another thing that would be useful is an About_en (at least from my
point of view trying to understand the copyright details of modules).
