    Default Is there such a word as dollar to dollar? Are the sentences correct? Please help

    1) You should compare the price from dollar to dollar.
    * Not sure if there is such a word.

    2) To find out if a product is cheaper in oversea, you should not convert the currency. You should compare the price and the currency of which the product is denominated with the currency you earn.

    3) In what currency is th product denominated?

    I'm afraid I don't understand any of your sentences.
    What do you mean by "denominated"?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I think in 3 it just means 'marked' or 'listed'. If it does, it probably means that in 2 as well.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I meant to say the product is listed or marked, Bobk were right.

    Is there such a word, from dollar to dollar?

    Is there such a phrase: 'from dollar to dollar'?


    Note that 'from dollar to dollar' is a phrase or expression of four words.

    How about if I rephrase it this way? Will it be more understandable?

    Compare the prices of the product in the same currency as the listed price and the currency you are making.

    You don't make currency, so how about the currency you are using?

    Ooops....I never thought of that :). Thanks for correcting my mistake. I think the word using will be a better choice.

    Compare the prices of the producst in the same currency as the listed price and the currency you are using.
