Twenty Seventeen: Logic for translated strings in connection with Screen Reader text can be improved

There are 2 strings including:

screen-reader-text"> "%s"


Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "%s"</span>



Edit<span class="screen-reader-text"> "%s"</span>

In german (as an example, I assume this happens too in other languages) the syntax for 1) needs to be reversed like that:

<span class="screen-reader-text">"%s"</span> weiterlesen

2) gets:

<span class="screen-reader-text">&#8222;%s&#8220;</span> bearbeiten

which is correct for Screen Reader Users, but it should rather be capitalized in both cases so the button text doesn't start lowercase, see screenshot.


We could now capitalize the strings in translation, but there must be a better solution!?

PS: Yes, the quotation marks in our translation also needs a little attention, but that's not part of the ticket ;-)
