The numerals used in English and other languages using a Latin alphabet are known as Arabic numerals (or, more precisely, Western Arabic numerals). I wish to transcribe 60 (and not sixty) into different numeral systems.

Is there an online resource that transcribes Western Arabic numerals into other numeral systems?

    I think you should specify which numeral systems you are interested in.

  • Any numeral system based on other figures than 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Sep 29, 2016 at 15:38

    I see you have received a helpful answer, so this may not matter to you. But in the future, please try to focus your questions a lot more than this. Asking for "resources for other numeral systems" is incredibly broad. It's also not really related to language learning, per se. In future, please specify which numeral system, for instance, you're interested in.

  • You might ask a question like this on Math SE. If you're trying to express numerals in different "bases," this is fundmentally a math question, not a language question,

Most converters I have found support only two or three systems, for example:

I have not yet found converters for

There are also numerous sites where you can download programs that you can install locally, and numerous source code repositories with source code for converters, e.g. romanize (JavaScript code for conversion between Arabic and Roman numerals) and NumeralConverter (Visual Basic and Python code for conversion between Arabic and Roman numerals).

There have also been StackOverflow question about how to code converters for numeral systems, e.g. Convert number to string using Hebrew letters (C#).

  • Tks a lot for your answer ! Pity there is not a global converter for many numeral systems... Sep 23, 2016 at 16:52
  • @XavierLabouze I'm sure that kind of thing can be programmed, but I don't have time for it at the moment.
