      Description

      Title-casing of lowercase messages is currently automated through ucfirst calls in the code. There are two issues with the current implementation:

      1. Special characters are not upper-cased
      2. Title-casing is not always correct


      For example:

      1. French émérite fails to be title-cased (to "Émérite")
      2. English Musical relationships type is not correctly title-cased (to "Musical Relationships"), whereas it would be correct into French ("Relation musicale")


      It might be best to avoid title-casing automation. If necessary, (localized) quotation marks might be added instead.
