Long ago (ca. 2000-2001) when Logos was preparing to release the first 
version of Series X, they had a very nice web app that would allow 
people to pick a language and then input the localized version of all of 
the Bible book names.

I think it would be great (and a nice project for any of you more 
inclined to working on web apps) if we could do the same and extend it 
to cover the localizable Sword & front end strings.
