I'm translating some software from German (where there's a correct way for everything) into English (my native language, but also where I do so much more just by feeling) and I'm stumped by things like:
My sense is that all three should not be hyphenated or capitalized (though I'm not sure about at the beginning of a sentence.) I should have made it more clear in writing the original question that I'm talking about capitalizing the words 'value' or 'coordinate.'
Some examples (not real, but of the sort I'd have to translate) might be:
- Transform T value
- X value out of range
- Enter Y coordinate
Just recently the topic came up with my boss and she asked if that was the rule in English and I truthfully told her I didn't know. Is it the rule? Is there a rule?
