In non English-language titles, capitalization does not necessarily follow the same rules as in English-language titles. For example, in German titles (both articles and books), all nouns and only nouns are capitalized; typically, in French, Spanish, and Italian book titles, capitalize only the first word, proper names, and abbreviations that are capitalized in English. As with English-language books, government bulletins, documents, and pamphlets, italicize the title. Non English-language titles may be given as they originally appeared, without translation: 1. Richartz E, Schott KJ, Wormstall H. Psychopharmakotherapie bei Demenzerkrankungen. Dtsch Med Wochenschr. 2004;129(25/26):1434-1440. 2. Ohayon MM. Prevalencia y factores de riesgo
