I mentally translate this as "I (put my) hope on it." I know this isn't technically correct, but it helps me to remember the meaning in way that is closer to "I hope so."

Det var så lidt! I hope it helps them. Swedish is next for me, I hope.

I'm confused, Why isn't "I hope for that" a perfectly good and obvious translation? Is it just that people have trouble remembering that "på" is not precisely "on'?

Could "I hope it's so" be considered correct?
