Capitalization in Spanish
In Spanish, the first letter of every sentence is capitalized, as is the first letter of all proper nouns (names of people, cities, countries, places, etc.).
The first letter of the first word in titles of books, films, and works of art is generally capitalized.
Watch out! In Spanish you do not capitalize every word in a title. You only capitalize the first word.
Newspapers and magazines
In Spanish, you do capitalize each word in newspaper and magazine titles.
Time Words and Adjectives

- days of the week
- the first word in geographical names
