Build Status Coverage Status Maven Central

Tradukisto is a library for Java 8+ created to convert numbers to their word representations.

The main motivation behind its creation was lack of a production-ready tool providing number conversion for Polish language. There are many individual classes, but we felt there is definitely space for something well tested and ready to use in production without copy-pasting someone else's code.


  • Converts Integer to String with numerical representation support.
  • Converts BigDecimal to String with money representation support.

Supported languages

  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Czech
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Kazakh
  • Latvian
  • Polish
  • Russian
  • Slovak
  • Ukrainian
  • Serbian (latin)
  • Turkish


Add tradukisto as dependency:

repositories {

dependencies {
    compile ''

and use it:

ValueConverters converter = ValueConverters.ENGLISH_INTEGER;
String valueAsWords = converter.asWords(1_234);

assertEquals("one thousand two hundred thirty-four", valueAsWords);
MoneyConverters converter = MoneyConverters.ENGLISH_BANKING_MONEY_VALUE;
String moneyAsWords = converter.asWords(new BigDecimal("1234.56"));

assertEquals("one thousand two hundred thirty-four £ 56/100", moneyAsWords);

Tradukisto can handle only values with no more than two digits after the decimal point. Otherwise IllegalArgumentException will be thrown. For that reason you should either construct BigDecimal object based on String value as shown in example above or use setScale) method to ensure that given value has appropriate precision.
