Inaccurate placement for the currency symbol (SEK) in Sweden Thank you letter
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


Hi all,

I just made a test donation using the Swedish form and my Swedish card and realized that the SEK currency symbol is misplaced in the Thank you letter.

the SL says : "Your kr 10.00 gift = free knowledge for billions" whereas it should say "Your 10.00 kr gift.." The currency symbol goes after the amount. Can we change this?

Can we just remove the amount from the subject line altogether? I talked
to @MBeat33 and he is okay with it. I'm happy to update the task

Hi @jrobell, the amount formatting seems to choose the placement based on the language. For Swedish language letters, it puts the currency symbol after the amount.

Thank you for the additional info here. I agree with @CCogdill_WMF here that we should just go ahead and remove the amount all together. Can that be done easily @Ejegg?

@CCogdill_WMF, @jrobell, this change is deployed. We should have subject lines without the amount from now on.
