I am using the Plot function in a usual way. I use Mathematica 9.0.1.0 in English (I do not know if it is available in other languages, but I do not mind), and as a result of that, the numbers that appear in the frame tick labels use dots as decimal markers.

I need all numbers in the plot to be shown with a comma as a decimal marker. Is that possible?

Here you have a MWE —nothing special:

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> Automatic, Frame -> True, 
 Axes -> False, AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio, ImageSize -> 600, 
 Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> Automatic, 
 LabelStyle -> Directive[FontFamily -> "Calibri", FontSize -> 12]]

This is what I get:

Minimum Working Example

This is a minor issue, as I can export the image and change its labels outside Mathematica, but in case I would like to do this inside Mathematica, how could I get it?

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

I've tried it by using $Language = "Spanish", with no success.

You can also use the option NumberPoint->"," as a sub-option in LabelStyle:

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> Automatic, Frame -> True, 
    Axes -> False, AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio, ImageSize -> 600, 
    Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> Automatic, 
LabelStyle -> Directive[FontFamily -> "Calibri", FontSize -> 20, Red, NumberPoint -> ","]]

enter image description here

Or use BaseStyle -> (NumberPoint -> ","):

 Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> Automatic, Frame -> True, 
    Axes -> False, AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio, ImageSize -> 600, 
    Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> Automatic, 
    BaseStyle -> (NumberPoint -> ","),
    LabelStyle -> Directive[FontFamily -> "Calibri", FontSize -> 20, Red]]

First, you can use Style:

Style[
 Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> Automatic, Frame -> True, 
  Axes -> False, AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio, ImageSize -> 600, 
  Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> Automatic, 
  LabelStyle -> Directive[FontFamily -> "Calibri", FontSize -> 12]],
 NumberPoint -> ","]

enter image description here

Second, you can set it globally in Preferences > Appearance > Numbers > Formatting.

Third, you can select the output cell and use the Options Inspector to set the NumberPoint option for the cell.

  • $\begingroup$ OK! Thanks! In fact, I have just found the answer at the same time. This is an alternative, putting NumberPoint within the LabelStyleoption: Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> Automatic, Frame -> True, Axes -> False, AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio, ImageSize -> 600, Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> Automatic, LabelStyle -> Directive[FontFamily -> "Calibri", FontSize -> 12, NumberPoint -> ","]] $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Vincent Cool. I didn't try LabelStyle. You can put that in your own answer. Some other users might look only at the answers and not at the comments. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Vicent No problem. Actually, it's good practice to wait (at least a few hours) before accepting. You encourage more answers that way, and sometimes the best one is not the first one. $\endgroup$

To apply the comma to several plots, resp. to any output:

$Post = Style[#, NumberPoint -> ","] &

Grid[{Plot[#@x, {x, 0, Pi}] & /@ {Cos, Sin, Tanh}}]

enter image description here

$Post=. (* Reset *)

You can customize the NumberPoint also via Option Inspector (Menu "Format")
