Currently in AtoM, some languages (such as French, Portuguese, etc) appear in AtoM's language menu without initial capitalization of the first letter, while others have them. This is inherited from some Symfony defaults (found in the .dat files in the Symfony vendor folder), and seems like an attempt to follow conventions in some indo-european languages not to capitlalize languages in writing.

However, as a Portuguese user pointed (via GitHub issue 1128 ), this is typically the case when they are used mid-sentence - not as the start of a sentence, or as an item in a menu!

The languages listed in AtoM's language menu should be capitalized consistently. Ideally we will find a way to address this without having to make local modifications to the Symfony defaults.

Community user Matt Innes has submitted a pull request that addresses this issue without changing the Symfony .dat files. I have tested it locally and it seems to work well.
