How many euro in a trillion???

Counting in millions, billions and trillions is not easy for one who still can't recite her time tables. Add in some translation and cultural differences, and it becomes impossible. I never knew a French trillion had nothing to do with an English or American trillion. I never had to worry about it before either, but it seems that if the Americans lose a trillion, they lose a thousand billions, but if the French were to lose a trillion, they would lose a billion billions. All I can think about is Scrooge McDuck diving into his money...
