Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template converts a value given in the national currency of a given country to US dollars. The template uses values published by the IMF.[1]

Syntax[edit]

{{To USD | {{{1}}} | {{{2}}} | | year = {{{year}}} | round = {{{round}}} }}

  • {{{1}}} is the value in the local currency to be converted.
  • {{{2}}} is the country name or 3-letter ISO code for the country whose currency is being converted.
  • {{{year}}} is the year to use for the US dollar value, e.g. US dollars current in 2009. The default is currently 2016.
  • {{{round}}} is an optional parameter. If it is equal to "yes", then the converted value is displayed to the nearest US dollar. The default is rounding to the nearest penny.
