Nothing changes the way that %-formatting works.

However, after calling locale.setlocale, locale.format should give you a
proper localized number:

>>> import locale
>>> locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL,"de_DE")
'de_DE'
>>> locale.format("%10.2f", 0.123)
'      0,12'
>>> locale.format("%10.2f", 1234.567)
'   1234,57'
>>> locale.format("%10.2f", 1234.567, grouping=True)
'  1.234,57'
