I’m trying to understand best practices for capitalization in UI design relating to technical terminology.
My impression from a search is that only trademarks, products, and those sorts of things get proper noun status. As such, I suspect that unique - but not trademarked - technical innovations should not be capitalized differently than other UI elements of that type (eg: in a form field).
I strongly suspect that this varies wildly, since companies that have technical innovations always want them to stand out. This often happens through capitalization (or quotes, or underlines…).
