[sword-devel] Languages that use postpositions instead of prepositions

Some languages use postpositions instead of prepositions.
This may implications for implementing some front-end localizations.

Example: Japanese

"Go to A" should be translated as "A に行く" or "A に進む"

"About A" should be translated as "A について"

Many Indic languages (such as Hindi) also use postpositions.

Topic came up in context of UI translations for Go Bible, but is of general
relevance if any localization strings are of a similar nature. 

In the above examples, "A" varies, depending on the program state.
