This page describes the French mode of the [[Guess Case]] function.
==Implements the following Guidelines and Capitalization Standards==
The French guess case mode is based on the [[Guess Case Mode/Sentence Mode|sentence mode]].
Generally, the first word of a sentence is capitalized, and the other words are lowercased. The [[Capitalization Standard French]] requires users to convert the nouns (people, places, see the standard page for details) to be titled, therefore some manual interaction is required after the guess case function was applied.
French uses special whitespace rules before punctuation, a space is inserted before the punctuation marks semicolon, colon, exclamation mark and question mark (;:!?) and text inside guillemets is padded with a space, respectively (« some text »).
