Convert numbers to words - their written form.

Install with npm

npm i --save written-number

Install with bower

bower install written-number

Usage

var writtenNumber = require('written-number');
writtenNumber(1234); // => 'one thousand two hundred and thirty-four'

Options

  • noAnd - Defaults to false. Determines whether to use a separator. The separator is internationalized.
  • lang - Could be string or object. Defaults to 'en'. Determines which language to use. An i18n configuration object may be passed to support external language definitions.

Internationalization

Currently supported languages are:

  • English lang = "en"
  • Portuguese (Brazil) lang = "pt"
  • Portuguese (Portugal) lang = "ptPT"
  • Spanish lang = "es"
  • French lang = "fr"
  • Esperanto lang = "eo"
  • Vietnamese lang = "vi"
  • Turkish lang = "tr"
  • English (Indian) lang = "enIndian"
  • Ukrainian lang = "uk"

Spanish Example

var writtenNumber = require('written-number');
writtenNumber(1234, { lang: 'es' }); // => 'mil doscientos treinta y cuatro'
var writtenNumber = require('written-number');
writtenNumber.defaults.lang = 'es';
writtenNumber(4758); // => 'cuatro mil setecientos cincuenta y ocho'

Portuguese (Brazil) Example

var writtenNumber = require('written-number');
writtenNumber(1234, { lang: 'pt' }); // => 'mil duzentos e trinta e quatro'

French Example

var writtenNumber = require('written-number');
writtenNumber(1234, { lang: 'fr' }); // => 'mille deux cent trente-quatre'

Esperanto Example

var writtenNumber = require('written-number');
writtenNumber(1234, { lang: 'eo' }); // => 'mil ducent tridek kvar'

Vietnamese Example

var writtenNumber = require('written-number');
writtenNumber(1234, { lang: 'vi' }); // => 'một ngàn hai trăm và ba mươi bốn'

Ukrainian Example

var writtenNumber = require('written-number');
writtenNumber(1234, { lang: 'uk' }); // => 'одна тисяча двісті тридцять чотири'

Configure your own language

Each language has it's own unique grammar exceptions. You can create your own language.json file in the folder "i18n" and give writtenNumber support for it. I don't think the current scheme and logic cover all the cases, but may be cover some.

useLongScale:

'Boolean' that indicates if it use long or short scale. This differs the meaning of the words billion, trillion and so on.

baseSeparator:

'String' that separates the base cardinal numbers. Example: 29 -> twenty-eight. Spanish uses the conector " y ".

unitSeparator:

'String' that separates the units from the last base cardinal numbers. Example: 1234 -> one thousand two hundred and thirty-four

base:

Base cardinals numbers. Numbers that have unique names and are used to build others.

alternativeBase:

Alternative versions of base cardinals numbers for usage with specific units (ex. thousands in Ukrainian use feminine form of base cardinal numbers). These bases will be treated as an extension for the default base.

"alternativeBase"{
  "feminine": {
    "1": "одна",
    "2": "дві"
  }
}
units:

Number units. It can be:

  • String

  • Object normal flow. Give support to singular and plural units. English does not need this, but spanish does.

{
  "singular": "millón",
  "plural": "millones"
}
  • Object with few word form.

In some languages like Ukrainian, there are specific unit forms for values from 2 (including) to 4 (including). This forms can be specified with few.

{
  "singular": "мільйон",
  "few": "мільйони",
  "plural": "мільйонів",
  ...
}
  • Object with useAlternativeBase.

Selects an alternativeBase name which this unit should prefer over the default base if possible.

{
  "singular": "тисяча",
  "few": "тисячі",
  "plural": "тисяч",
  "useAlternativeBase": "feminine"
  ...
}
  • Object with useBaseInstead exception.

In some languages like spanish, specific units like "ciento", use the base cardinal number instead.

With useBaseException you can also specify with which unit (1 to 9) you don't want use the base cardinal instead and use the regular behaviour.

{
  "singular": "ciento",
  "useBaseInstead": true,
  "useBaseException": [1]
}
  • Object with avoidPrefixException exception.

In some languages like spanish, specific units like "mil" does not use the base cardinal number prefix for unit 1.

{
  "singular": "mil",
  "avoidPrefixException": [1]
}
  • Object with avoidInNumberPlural exception.

In some languages like french, specific units like "cent" does not use the plural form inside of numbers wioth trailing numbers other than 0, for example "deux cents" and "deux cent trois".

{
  "singular": "cent",
  "plural": "cents",
  "avoidInNumberPlural": true
}
  • Object with useSingularEnding exception and useFewEnding exception.

In some languages like Ukrainian, singular form of the unit is also used for any values that end with 1 (21, 31, 14, ..., 101, ...) and "few" form of the unit is also used for any values that end with 2, 3 and 4 (22, 33, 44, ..., 104, ...). The avoidEndingRules exception provides values (1 to 999) where these rules must be ignored and the plural form must be used instead.

{
  "singular": "мільйон",
  "few": "мільйони",
  "plural": "мільйонів",
  "useSingularEnding": true,
  "useFewEnding": true,
  "avoidEndingRules": [11, 12, 13, 14, 111, 112, 113, 114, 211, 212, 213, 214, 311, 312, 313, 314, 411, 412, 413, 414, 511, 512, 513, 514, 611, 612, 613, 614, 711, 712, 713, 714, 811, 812, 813, 814, 911, 912, 913, 914]
}
unitExceptions:

Sometimes grammar exceptions affect the base cardinal joined to the unit. You can set specific exceptions to any base cardinal number.

Spanish example:

Without Exception (Wrong): 1232000 -> **uno** millón doscientos treinta y dos mil
With Exception: 1232000 -> **un** millón doscientos treinta y dos mil

English configuration example

{
  "useLongScale": false,
  "baseSeparator": "-",
  "unitSeparator": "and ",
  "base": {
    "0": "zero",
    "1": "one",
    "2": "two",
    "3": "three",
    ...
    "90": "ninety"
  },
  "units" : [
    "hundred",
    "thousand",
    "million",
    "billion",
    "trillion",
    ...
    "quindecillion"
  ],
  "unitExceptions": []
}

Spanish configuration example

{
  "useLongScale": true,
  "baseSeparator": " y ",
  "unitSeparator": "",
  "base": {
    "0": "cero",
    "1": "uno",
    "2": "dos",
    "3": "tres",
    ...
    "1000": "mil"
  },
  "unitExceptions": {
    "1": "un"
  },
  "units" : [
    {
      "singular": "ciento",
      "useBaseInstead": true,
      "useBaseException": [1]
    },
    {
      "singular": "mil",
      "avoidPrefixException": [1]
    },
    {
      "singular": "millón",
      "plural": "millones"
    },
    ...
  ]
}
