In my opinion the language of book names and abbreviations should be  
according to the system locale because that's the preferred language  
of the user.
For verse reference handling AFAIK SWORD supports english always even  
if a different locale is set.
So for example I could enter a german book name but also an english  
book name.
The same would apply to verse reference notation but currently SWORD  
only supports the english one anyway I think.
