I am using biblatex together with biber and the biblatex-fiwi package.

Each word in the title data entry of the items in my bibliography should have an initial capital letter. Is there any easy way to force biblatex to display all the entries in my bibliography this way? Which file(s) do I have to edit and which line of code do I have to add?

The biblatex-command in my .tex document looks like this:


fiwi 2 is my current bib-style. I guess I have to change/add something in the .bbx or .cbx files of the fiwi package?

  • Try \DeclareFieldFormat{booktitle}{\MakeCapital #1 } – Marco Daniel Aug 10 '12 at 14:05
  • @Marco Thanks for the suggestion. I changed my Tex-File and the fiwi2.bbx-file. According to this post, both should be possible, but unfortunately, nothing worked - all book titles are displayed as before. – muderseb Aug 10 '12 at 14:39
  • And the star version \DeclareFieldFormat*{booktitle}{\MakeCapital #1 } – Marco Daniel Aug 10 '12 at 14:40
  • @Marco Done :-) This didn't help either. I guess it doesn't matter whether I edit both files simultaneously or only one at a time? I also tried \DeclareFieldFormat{titlecase}{\MakeCapital{#1}}, buiding on this question; I suppose the difference is that the latter command applies to all titles, not just book titles? – muderseb Aug 10 '12 at 15:00
