is - as far as I know - *the* OS catch-all project for
encoding-conversion and localisation tasks. It's written in C++, has a
C wrapper and Java's functionality on these topics is based on ICU. I
don't know whether there's a python wrapper for it, but IIRC the
gnue-project (which is mainly written in Python) uses ICU.

but as stated above often in commercial applications the problem is
not the currency formatting but to provide the complete information of
amount, source currency and target currency throughout the complete
flow of the program.
