FW: Google School: Currency Conversion

This is too sweet.  The folks at Google just keep rolling out the interesting stuff.  Here’s a currency converter you might find interesting.  It’s especially if you work in multiple currencies or need a quite reference.  Great stuff for the time-crunched missionary.

Disclaimer: Google cannot guarantee the accuracy of the exchange rates used by the calculator. You should confirm current rates before making any transactions that could be affected by changes in the exchange rates. Foreign currency rates provided by Citibank N.A. and displayed under license. Rates are for information purposes only and are subject to change without notice. Rates for actual transactions may vary, and Citibank is not offering to enter into any transaction at any rate displayed.


Google makes it easy to calculate money conversions from one form of currency to another. For example, you can google for $5 in yen to discover that five dollars is worth about 600 yen.

If you're not sure of the name of a currency, use nationality instead. You can google for 25 Australian money in Italian money. It sounds awkward but it does the job.

You can even convert units in this fashion. Googling for $2.85 per gallon in British money per liter (which turns out to be about 42 pence per liter) provides an international basis for discussing gas prices at the pump.

Serious opportunity seeker should think
of forex.
Forex trading is quite safe.
While there are large risks and large rewards,
the risks are essentially limited to the capital that you have put into your account.
