    Default Capital letters

    Good morning -
    since my job involves proofresding of CVs I often encounter English titles (though the native language is Danish) - so my quiestion is whether titles are generally written with capital letters or not.
    Thanks for your help

    IS it correct:

    I trekked in The Mecsek Hill.

    Is it well capitalized?

    It depends on the context. What is Mecsek Hill?
    My first thought would be no article. "I am going to climb Mecsek Hill next Saturday."

    What do you think?
