Description Denis Jacquerye 2007-01-04 13:26:00 UTC
The currently uses the Anglo-Saxon decimal and thousand separators.

Lingala being spoken in countries where French is the official language. It
should use one the French decimal operator. The default being the international
standard decimal separator comma instead of period and the standard thousand
separator NBSP instead of comma.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-01-04 13:53:58 UTC
To confirm, the Lingala language uses:

* spaces as a thousand separator
* commas as a decimal separator

Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2007-01-04 18:23:05 UTC
That is correct in french rob (ex: 1 560,38)
Comment 3 Denis Jacquerye 2007-01-04 20:46:42 UTC
I confirm Lingala uses non-breaking spaces as thousand separator and commas as
decimal separator.

Sometime others are being used but the international standard should be the default.

Changed in r18819.
