This question already has an answer here:

How is one supposed to number pages in words?

eg: 1 → 'Page one'

  • \pagenumbering{style} does not provide an option for full words.
  • Ctan under the category page numberring (page-nos) does not have any package which numbers the pages in words.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

See Convert any number to corresponding word for several solutions. – Kundor Feb 10 '13 at 21:20

A solution to the problem can be achieved using

  • fancyhdr : custom headers and footers
  • fmtcount : format a counter to a variety of formats (including the english word)

These packages will be used as follows :


\usepackage{fmtcount}%Page number to full english
\usepackage{fancyhdr}%Header and footer

\fancyhead{} % No header
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt}%No ruler
\fancyfoot[CE, CO] {\textit{Page \numberstringnum{\thepage}}}%Print Page and convert page number

\usepackage{lipsum}%Dummy text

\lipsum[1-35]%Dummy text
