Turning a numerical value into text using the digits 0 through 9 is a common formatting process for a computer to do. Turning a numerical value into written or spoken words, like zero through nine, is much more complex. A summary of numerical contexts to consider when using these resources will also be covered.
This presentation will cover the resources available in CLDR (Common Locale Data Repository) and ICU (International Components for Unicode) in order to turn numbers into words. A summary of numerical contexts to consider when using these resources also be covered.
