English term or phrase: Crores and Lakhs
Hi colleagues!

I have to translate a figure in Indian currency in some tender documents:

The original document says: The accepted Contract price is Rs. 3638,57,80,142.00 (Rupees Three Thousand Six Hundred Thirty Eight Crores Fifty Seven Lakhs Eighty Thousand One Hundred and Forty Two only).

My try, after some browsing efforts :

El precio aceptado del Contrato asciende a Rs. 3638.57.80.142,00 (tres mil seiscientos treinta y ocho Crores (10 7 (number 7 in superscript) cincuenta y siete Lacs (10 5 (number 5 in superscript) ochenta mil ciento cuarenta y dos rupias).

Any help?
Thank you so much in advance!

Explanation:
Hola, Claudia:

Si el texto está dirigido a un público que no usa la numeración india, creo que primero sería necesario agrupar los números de tres en tres y separarlos con un espacio, como indica la RAE. Los números se agrupan de dos en dos en la numeración india.

Teniendo en cuenta esto, también podrías localizar las unidades de medida. Un crore es una unidad de diez millones, y un lac es una unidad de cien mil. Por lo tanto, en vez de decir dos crores, podríamos decir veinte millones</1>.

¡Saludos!

Solo por si acaso, hay que ignorar el </1>. Quería escribir el código de formato HTML para el cierre de la cursiva.
