While working with Wordfast (classic) the AutoCorrect feature within MS Word capitalizes the first letter of each sentence, but when I migrated most of my workload to SDL Trados Studio 2014 I really started to miss that handy function!

Also web-based CAT tools that some clients require like XTM and Wordbee do not support such feature.

Have you used any other CAT tool that capitalizes the first letter as you type?

Thank you in advance.

The later incarnations of Trados Studio (2015 and 2017) have this feature under Options/Autocorrect.

Thanks so much, Wojciech!

Does anyone else know about any other CAT tools that are able to capitalize as-you-type? (maybe DejaVu, CafeTran, OmegaT, Across?)

CafeTran can do this, optionally. It will also adapt case when you transpose the first two words of a segment. Taking cares of two-letter combinations that take uppercase, like the Dutch 'ij': 'IJskoud weer' becomes 'Weer ijskoud'.

This CAT tool also has such functionality.
In addition, it automatically replaces double spaces with single spaces.

...has a checkbox in the Autocorrect menu to capitalise (or not) the first letter of each segment.
