ReportingCloud provides fields that are localized automatically based on a culture that can be specified. We just introduced a new property in the MergeSettings object to specify the culture for the merge process.

The endpoint document/merge accepts a MergeBody object in the request body data. This object contains a MergeSettings object to adjust several settings for the merge process. The new property culture accepts a string that specifies the culture for the merge process for date and currency values. It must be the Language Culture Name that can be found in this list:

Table of Language Culture Names

For example: For French use "fr-FR", for German "de-DE". Default is English "en-US".
