I'm localising a times-table app aimed at children. I understand that the Japanese and Chinese languages have a variety of ways to represent numbers. I also have read that, particularly with Japanese, 0-9 are commonly used for representing numbers.
Is it appropriate to use arabic numerals (particularly in education apps) is in Japanese and Chinese culture?
I know that arabic numerals aren't the solution to representing number. I also know that Japanese and Chinese cultures are completely different; however they are both very large markets with some similar challenges in localisation. I also know that large and small numbers (like 1,001 or 1.001) are formatted differently. This question is specific to integers less than 999 and greater than 0.
