translate-camelcase-name is a helper function for specializations of translate-name-from-foreign and translate-name-to-foreign. It handles the common case of converting between foreign camelCase names and lisp names. upper-initial-p indicates whether the first letter of the foreign name should be uppercase. special-words is a list of strings that should be treated atomically in translation. This list is case-sensitive.
