button_save_object should not downcase label_query
Introduced with #34494 for translation :button_save_object the object_name uses label_query with downcase.
In German (and most likely other languages, too) the translation for label_query has to stay with an upper letter.
abfrage speichern is currently generated with downcase, but it should be "
The attached patch removes downcase from :button_save_object.

Found another problem with the same change for deleting issues. #31278 uses downcase for :label_issue. This cannot be used for German. In German it has to be
Actually this problem exists with:
For each of these labels object_name uses downcase, which makes Redmine looks very strange in German (I'd not say unusable - but very unprofessional).
If we want to stick with :button_*_object, we need a lower case and an upper case label for all objects. E.g. label_issue and label_Issue. label_query and label_Query. But which language need the lower label and which the upper label? Because of this (unsolvable?) question, it would be better to revert :button_*_object introduction. Maybe switch to buttons with isolated label, as label_save_issue and label_save_query.
Please ignore my patch, it would only remove downcase for label_query, which does not solve all problems related to :button_*_object.

Is nobody interested to solve this annoying bug? This bug is not even on the roadmap. Easiest solution would be to revert #34494.

We have the same problem.
For English or other languages that do not care about Uppercase the current solution may work,
but all other languages have an problem with this.
Please let the users decide how to write it right
and add for the cases of #34494, #31278 and similar tickets new labels in the "language".yml
und stop the downcasing of labels.
