ICU has that built in and localized:
But note:
"ICU provides number spellout rules for several locales, but not for all of the locales that ICU supports, and not all of the predefined rule types. Also, as of release 2.6, some of the provided rules are known to be incomplete."

But I see no reason to add the dependency for something that's already done via gettext.
