Create a document with the formatting of a different language in Pages for iCloud
When you create a new document, you can choose to have numerical data (such as dates, times, or currency) in tables and charts formatted according to the conventions of a specific language and region. For example, some regions use commas instead of periods to indicate decimal points, or they use different monetary symbols for currency, or they display numbers from right to left instead of left to right.
You might want to do this if you plan to share the document with someone in another region. This language setting affects only the current document.
In the document manager, click the Create Document button in the toolbar.
Click the pop-up menu in the top-left corner of the template chooser, then choose a language.
If the formatting conventions of a language differ by the region in which it’s spoken, choose the language and region you prefer—for example, English (United Kingdom).
When you choose a new language, the titles of the templates and some formatting options in the Format sidebar on the right change to reflect the language.
Double-click a template (to narrow the choices, click a category along the top).
When a document uses different language formatting, a message near the bottom of the document indicates the formatting used. To see examples of the formatting differences, click the language in the message.
If you add numbers, dates, times, or currency to a table in this document, you can format the data using the conventions of the chosen language. Charts and page numbers also reflect that language’s conventions.
After a document is created, you can only change its formatting conventions in the Pages app on a Mac, iPhone, or iPad. For more information, open the Pages app on your computer or device, then choose Help > Pages Help (on a Mac) or tap More > Pages Help (on iPhone or iPad).
