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


  • {{#numbertext:number|language}}
  • {{#moneytext:number|currency|language}}


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

Default language sets by variable $wgNumbertext_defaultLang, which by default equally $wgLanguageCode (see Site language).

You can specify a different default language, or an empty string, and will use the language specified in the user preferences.
