German to English translations [PRO]
German term or phrase: séparateur de milliers
Not really much context, though I don't think too much is required. What is the English expression for this (where the English use a comma - 1,000 - and the French a full stop - 1.000). Any ideas?

Yes of course it's French -- sorry to all the German speakers out there - just a slip of the mouse.
I had thought of this term but had never heard it personally so wasn't entirely sure. Thanks for your confirmation.
