Description (last modified by mark) (diff)

Hi there,

Would it be possible to have a look at this post for Spanish (es) for consideration? Thanks a lot!


For reference:

Hi guys,

Sorry for reporting this at this stage, but the Spanish Language Manager at Google has asked me to please change all these "mil" to "000" or at least "K", because it's true that having something like "1,2 mil" is not correct, as this article of the Fundéu points out: https://www.fundeu.es/recomendacion/numeralescompuestos/

If you think about it, if "mil" fits, then "000" definitely should fit as well. At Google we use a period instead of a space for the thousand separator, i.e. "100.000" instead of "100 000", so I understand that depending on your language style guide, it may be difficult to agree on the specific separator. On our end, as long as we avoid using "mil", it'll be OK to use a period or a comma, or even "K", although as I said, if "mil" fits, "000" should fit as well (a period might even help to reduce pixels in this case).

Would it be possible to discuss this with your team? Here's screenshot of what I mean (the highlighted area comes from the CLDR value here): https://drive.google.com/file/d/14QIK2B6GAPBeYke-RTNqj2l1hKYtk6du/view?usp=sharing

Thanks a lot!

Hello, Italian has the same challenge, with the addition that "K" is not that commonly understood by final users. For Italian, we agreed on voting for a single 0 (zero digit) in the CLDR results, although it poses risks for small screens, so far for Google product (namingly YouTube) we didn't see any issues with char limits and spacing. More on using a single 0 can be found here > http://cldr.unicode.org/translation/number-patterns#TOC-Short-Numbers

including examples, hope this helps!
