Hello - First of all I want to say thank to all the community for this great product.

We are testing and so far it is working good, but we are wondering how we can setup the currency format so it can be displayed at the left of the amounts?

For example: We have setup our store for use “Peruvian Nuevo Sol” an “American Dollar”, when the amounts are displayed in american dollars magento shows it as “$ 15.00”, but when the amounts are displayed as peruvian nuevo sol it shows as “42.45 PEN”

After some research we changed the peruvian nuevo sol symbol from “PEN” to “S/.” (editing the /lib/Zend/Locale/Data/es.xml locale file), but it still showing the currency symbol at the right of the amounts.

We think that the location of the symbol can be changed also from the locale file, we continue researching it… but if someone can help us would be great.

Thank You,

Hello again - after some tests we were able to show the current symbol at the left of the amounts, we were using the “spanish spain” locale, after change to spanish colombia locate it automatically changed the position of the symbol (from right to left), so looks like the locale has included the currency format (symbol location, decimals, etc)… but we are wondering where is that configuration?

Also we are wondering how we can add new locale to magento? - we do not found Spanish peru.

We will appreciate any help.

Thank You,

Limber Jaimes
