Looks like you're right but it's also a bit weird. During my tests I had several examples and corrected them: With the eBook-ISBN calibre retrieved the ASIN for the Kindle-Edition and did title case and after changing the ISBN to a Print Edition (Soft- or Hardcover) it didn't.

But I couldn't reproduce this behaviour today and now it seems to work...strange but fine If I find an example in the future I will post it here.

Looks like that way it will work :

For example the book title "United States of America:
Geschichte und Kultur- Von der ersten Kolonie bis zur Gegenwart" on books.google.de delivers the following log entries with only Google set as metadata source (excerpt):

...
Using plugins: Google
The log from individual plugins is below

Title : United States of America: Geschichte Und Kultur- Von Der Ersten Kolonie Bis Zur Gegenwart (title case done)
Author(s) : Bernd Stöver
Publisher : Beck C. H.
Languages : deu
Published : 2012-08-15T23:39:22.245000+00:00
Identifiers : google:Uf6TtgAACAAJ, isbn:9783406639678
...

Let's hope Google will always return "Languages".

I'm happy to test it soon

I see your point and that's fine with me.
