Hello, could someone tell me if it is possible to set Wordfast so that if it offers a word from the glossary, and if it is the first word of the sentence, it would give it with a capital first letter?

Which version? Oct 8, 2012

Not knowing anything about your setup, it's difficult to reply. There are three different Wordfasts: Classic, Pro and Anywhere. Start by telling us which one you refer to, and which version (if it is Classic or Pro).

I am using Wordfast Classic, but I also have a license for Pro (which I'm not using at present).

Independant of glossary term Oct 8, 2012

In WfC, NORMALLY, the first letter of the first word in the segment is capitalized, regardless of whether it is typed manually or selected from a glossary.

In some cases (there is a symbol before the first word, the word has been manually edited after being input in the segment, in particular), the first letter of the first segment word is not capitalized, but glossary terms are not treated differently.

Then it's a Word setting, in the AutoCorrect options for your target language:
