How to use this Chinese numbers converter?

Although the Chinese do use Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3 etc), in some settings they also have their own systems of numerals based on Chinese characters that are used in different settings. For example, formal Chinese numbers are used in banks and on cheques in China. Whilst this may seem confusing, this converter makes converting Chinese numbers to Arabic numbers and back again quick and easy!

There is no need to type in the Arabic numerals when writing Chinese numbers. You can just write the number in full, for example: 35,000 becomes 三万五千. This is broken down as  三 = 3 and 万 = x0,000 = 30,000 plus 五千 which is 五 = 5 and 千 = x000 = 5000. If this seems too complicated, fear not, for this converter is here to save the day!
