#17426 closed Bug (needsinfo)

Months in Spanish are written in lowercase

Reported by: opentia Owned by: nobody

The way the Django template system renders the name of the months in the Spanish localization is wrong, because it starts months with a capital letter (as English does). In Spanish months must be written as common nouns instead of proper nouns, so in lowercase as any other usual word.

It is correctly explained in Wikipedia, as in the Spanish Royal Academy of the Language:

According to the translations at transifex, Django uses lowercase and python does the same. Can you give more info about the situation which uses uppercase month names?

Just ran into this small detail. You can see in spanish translations that months are translated in title case instead of lowercase.
