I guess the standard work headed by Keld Simonsen, and the data
he keps on his servers, will be very helpful.

As a little warning, title casing is not such an easy thing.
There are examples of (recent, politically correct) German practice
where some characters go to lower case when a phrase/title as a whole
is put in upper case.

What do you mean by "represented"? Mother tongue, fluency, or what?
