      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      In the installation process of the Java JDK, in spanish language, says "3 billones de dispositivos ejecutan java". This sentence has a syntax error. A billion, in english, means "a thousand of millons". But in Spanish, a billion it means "a million of millions". So, if you want to translate "3 billion of devices executes Java" to Spanish, you have to say "3 mil millones de dispositivos ejecutan Java". Otherwise, you are multiplying by 1.000 the meaning of the sentence.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      A billion, in english, means "a thousand of millons". But in Spanish, a billion it means "a million of millions"

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      if you want to translate "3 billion of devices executes Java" to Spanish, you have to say "3 mil millones de dispositivos ejecutan Java". Otherwise, you are multiplying by 1.000 the meaning of the sentence.
      ACTUAL -
      In the installation process of the Java JDK, in spanish language, says "3 billones de dispositivos ejecutan java".

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      if you want to translate "3 billion of devices executes Java" to Spanish, you have to say "3 mil millones de dispositivos ejecutan Java". Otherwise, you are multiplying by 1.000 the meaning of the sentence.
