That probably means that the locale file is broken. Book names are compared in 
upper case, afair.
This shouldn't happen for German, though.

There are other locales for languages like Chinese. Using Unicode should solve 
all your troubles. To use Unicode with Sword's versekey you have to do a 
StringMgr implementation and set it at the very beginning of the startup 
using StringMgr::setSystemStringMgr
I attached BibleTime's impl so you know how it could look like.

If you set an Unicode aware impl the in- and output of VerseKey will be utf8  
encoded strings.

I'm just guessing, I havn't looked into any sources. Hopefully I'm right :)
