About

This page describes the French mode of the GuessCase function.

Implements the following Guidelines and CapitalizationStandards

The French guess case mode is based on the sentence mode.

Generally, the first word of a sentence is capitalized, and the other words are lowercased. The CapitalizationStandardFrench 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 »).
