I have been noticing that people retain the original capitalization on article titles, and it is good that they are beginning to be selective about capitalization when translating, but Spanish article titles are always structured like ordinary sentences, whereas in English there are capitalization rules and procedures (First and last word capitalized, special words, etc.).

Example: La cierva en la gruta del león is The Deer in the Lion's Den in English (Does that example sound familiar?)
