Date and currency formats in documents created by OTM

The formatting of a date or monetary amount in a particular currency is governed by the recipient of the document.

Which date and currency formats are used in the documents created in OTM?

The formats correspond to the conventions for the language in question, possibly also the country of the recipient.

For example: A quotation is produced in US dollars in English. If the recipient of the quotation is located in the United Kingdom, the currency is displayed with "US$". If the recipient is in the US, on the other hand, only “$” is displayed. The formatting of the date and negative numbers is also handled differently in these two countries. OTM adapts the formats in the documents in a manner appropriate to the situation.

Where there is a risk of confusion with the display of a currency symbol, an indication of the currency will also be given using the ISO currency code (e.g. AUD for Australian dollars or MXN for Mexican pesos).

The governing parameters for the representation of a date or currency amount are
- the address and project language for customers
- the address and OTM language selected for the resources.
