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.

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
  • Or \numberstring{page} – egreg Feb 10 '13 at 21:25
