In "English", there are names: hundred (H) for 10^2, thousand (K) for
10^3, and then million (M) for 10^6, billion (G) for 10^9... and so on
for every 10^3.
In Chinese, the names are: 十 (shi) for 10^1, 百 (bai) for 10^2, 千
(qian) for 10^3, 萬 (wan) for 10^4, 億 (yi) for 10^8, 兆 (zhao) for
10^12... for every 10^4.
(you need proper fonts with Chinese characters here.)

Best regards,
