Writing and spelling numbers in Spanish

23 05 2007

A great link brought to my attention by Brett Grossman about writing numbers in Spanish.

The site is in Spanish, and at first glance may frighten you….keep going it’s quite easy to understand.

The page provides the correct spelling in Spanish and is a must have if you’re going to be working with written numbers, writing checks or just want to improve your knowledge of Spanish.

He says “It is a link that might be helpful for new-to-Mexico business people…the finer points of writing numbers in Spanish…it drove me crazy when I first got to Tampico…I can’t tell you how many checks were rejected because of the smallest error and the cost of a bounced check at Serfin is upwards of $800 pesos + IVA”.

If you’re new in Mexico and don’t understand Spanish make sure to go here Nombres de los numeros en Español (Names of the Numbers in Spanish) and make a copy for your office, wallet or checkbook….you’ll be glad you did.
