The Numbertext extension allows to transform numbers into words. It based on the numbertext.org service and supports more than thirty languages.

  2. currency - currency of money (sample: "USD", "EUR", "RUB", etc)
  3. language - language for transform (optional, sample "en", "en_US", "ru", "ru_RU", etc)
