is the comma thing just endemic to europe?

do people in asia use a comma or a period?

Show thread

oh yeah, another thing: i use my phone in swedish. i can't use my american banking apps because americans use a period and every non-english speaking country i've lived in uses a comma.

so the numbers are just... wrong. not even close. like the app doesn't really know what to do

on the text boxes that don't understand the comma in "1,25", i have to reach over to the period on the keyboard in order to get the number i want

example: i go to a swedish university. i use unreal engine. unreal engine isn't available in swedish, but it understands the computer uses a swedish number format.

on the numpad, there's a comma instead of a decimal. some text boxes accept "1,25", while others do not.

one thing i've never understood about the non-english speaking countries i've been in: why do you say 1,25 instead of 1.25.

this is especially annoying when using a computer
