While translating NeXuS, I tried to retain capitalized text (such as Save As, Dock Icon Size and so on)) where it was available.

Now I started wondering why it's so frequently used?

I considered remaking the swedish translation to not use it, because imho it looks way more clean and professional. I also think it's up to the developer how it should look, so I decided to make this a suggestion instead.

The texts should be similarily formatted in translations imho.

Hi, Italy here.
Agree. It's a matter of "culture": capitalization if often used in english-speaking countries, while a translator should not just blindly imitate this but adjust terms and style to fit his own target context.

As you stated, the result is way more clean & professional.

Mate, save yourself the time and stop replying to spammers. If you haven't noticed, their replies are totally nonsensical, they're just making brief posts combining the most unique words in a thread and stuffing them into pre-fabbed sentences, which they post, only to make it seem like there was intelligence behind it.
Don't bother...
