New on CTAN: fnumprint
The fnumprint package defines two macros which decide to typeset a number either as Arabic number or as word name for the number. If the number is between zero and twelve (including zero and twelve) then the word name will be used. This package uses the zahl2string package to convert a number in the word name in German. The conversion of a number (0–12) to the English word name is implemented by this package. If the number is outside of the range then it will be typesetted with the numprint package.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/fnumprint . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/fnumprint (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
fnumprint – Print a number in ‘appropriate’ format
The package defines two macros which decide to typeset a number either as an Arabic number or as a word (or words) for the number. If the number is between zero and twelve (including zero and twelve) then words will be used; if the number is outside that range, it will be typeset using the package numprint
Words for English representation of numbers are generated within the package, while those for German are generated using the package zahl2string.
