    Question ¿Los títulos oficiales van con mayúsculas?

    Estaba viendo unos textos donde se mencionan a Gobernadores, o Gobernador tal o Emperador tal, o el Presidente.

    Me agarró duda si es que los títulos van con mayúsculas o si es indistinto.

    ¿Cambia en el idioma inglés?

    Por ejemplo, ¿es lo mismo: "The President elect" a "The president elect"?

    Tampoco estoy muy seguro de esta regla en español.

    The office or position itself (president, senator, governor, emperor, etc.) is not capitalized. It is capitalized as the title of the office holder only when it precedes the person's name..

    Donald Trump is the 45th president of the US. In 2016 President Trump won a narrow victory. His closest opponent was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton was the secretary of state under President Barrack Obama who served as president for eight years. Prior to being elected president, Obama had been a U.S. senator. In 2008 Senator Obama ran for president and became President Obama.

    The mayor of Pittsville has announced the hiring of a new chief of police. Earlier today Mayor John Doe introduced Chief of Police Juan Ruiz to a gathering at City Hall.

    Likewise, the term president-elect is not capitalized unless it is used as the title of a person. " John Smith is our new president-elect. Please welcome President-elect Smith"

    Muy buena pregunta
    En español, los nombres de cargos como presidente, ministro, secretario general, fiscal general y términos similares se escriben con minúscula inicial por tratarse de sustantivos comunes.

    Thorough!

    Thank you very much Vicente!

    I'm going to ask MirB if in Spanish is the same, as I see in her reply, it looks like it doesn't.

    It appears as they are treated as common nouns.
