The below sample shows a chart with German language and number- and date formats. Click on the Reuse this chart to copy this project into your account for further investigation.
You can customize the localization settings in the Basic editor by choosing the Localization category.
Choose your desired Decimal point and Thousands separator characters.
Decimal point: Enter the character to be used as a decimal point in data values.
