You can represent time statements in most western languages where a prefix and/or suffix is used.
The default case is to use suffix only (as in English), which you
do by providing the
suffixFromNow settings in
the strings hash (earlier versions of timeago used the deprecated
fromNow options). If present, they are used.
2 minutes [suffixAgo] 2 minutes [suffixFromNow]
In case you want to use prefix only instead of
suffix (e.g. Greek), you provide the
prefixFromNow options in the strings hash and leave
suffixFromNow empty or null.
[prefixAgo] 2 minutes [prefixFromNow] 2 minutes
For languages where you want to use a prefix only for future tense and prefix/suffix for past tense (for example swedish), you can combine the prefix and suffixes as needed.
[prefixAgo] 2 minutes [suffixAgo] [prefixFromNow] 2 minutes
