Capitalization for Headlines – Dragoman Style

Here is another quick tip on capitalization. Our aim, as always, is to teach our audience at least one good trick in less than a minute.

This time we are discussing capitalization of headlines. If you are involved in translation, copy-editing or proofreading or in general in publishing, you will find our posts very useful.

Do not use ALL CAPS for headlines and headings!

Use ONE of these styles instead:

1. Lower case, except for the first word and proper nouns

Istanbul at home in a dark room in Tünel

 

2. Upper case for all words except for “a, an, the” and prepositions if not part of the title

Istanbul at Home in a Dark Room in Tünel

Istanbul At Home In A Dark Room In Tünel

ISTANBUL AT HOME IN A DARK ROOM IN TÜNEL

 

Let us give you another example (if you are listening to a podcast, please read our blog for added clarity)
