Capitalise nouns automatically

Hi everyone, I have many texts in German language where nouns are not capitalized. LanguageTool recognizes this but I have to manually click every single word to capitalize it. Isn’t there a way to automate all capitalization of nouns?

Hi Chris, by “many texts”, do you mean hundreds or thousands of texts? If so, you might want to use the API to programmatically check texts any apply the suggestion in these cases: https://languagetool.org/http-api/swagger-ui/#/default

No, not that many :slight_smile: A couple of dozens but there will be more texts like this in the future. I extract the auto-generated captions of YouTube videos. I just thought if there would be a tool that could automatically correct the capitalization for German language, that would be awesome. Not sure if the API function might be a bit too much but I will have a look at it. Thanks for the quick reply!
