I have a similar problem in that our documentation is written by
programmers who tend to capitalize every noun they can find! I also end
up having to "decapitalize" entire documents.
Although it still requires me to go throught the entire document, I have
set a custom keystroke to change capitalization. The standard keystroke
is SHIFT+F3, which is very uncomfortable. I changed it to ALT+C.

This is much quicker than deleting and retyping each letter.
