Simply put, title case means to capitalize every word except articles (a, an, the), conjunctions (and, or, but, …) and (short) prepositions (in, on, for, …). This is trickier than it seems, because many words can be used in different grammatical functions. For example, in “Lay It All on Me,” “on” is a preposition and must be lowercased, but it is used as an adjective in “It’s On Again” and as an adverb in “I Could Go On Singing,” so it must be capitalized in these sentences. The title case converter is able to handle cases like this correctly.
The title to be converted to title case. The maximum length is 300 characters; if the title is longer, it will be cut off.
