This snippet will allow you to define a custom truncate length of the WordPress post title in your template files.

Add this to your functions.php file.

   function cptl_title($char) {
      $title = get_the_title($post->ID);
      $title = substr($title,0,$char);
      echo $title;

And then add this to your template file where you want the post title to be displayed.

<?php cptl_title(100); ?>

*note – the number 100 is the characters allowed before title is being truncated. You can define any differently character amount on each post title thru-out your templates.
