International Authors

I just don’t get it.

Can someone explain to me why the greater majority of authors who submit articles from outside of the USA often don’t capitalize the first letters of their first and last name?

Is that the way it is done in other languages or other countries? If so, which language and which countries don’t capitalize the first letters of their first and last name?

I truly don’t think it has to do with countries, but with people becoming more careless about their rushy typing. I grew up in Mexico and learned to capitalize names, last names, country names, etc. Nevertheless, I see more and more people from Mexico spelling their names without capital letters. On another note, graphic designers don’t capitalize names to make their work of art look more “modern” or original.

Its nothing to do with being non-US – all are supposed to capitalize first letterr of 1st and last names.

As mentioned before – its laziness and/or rushing.
