Hello.

If I express 102.200,00 $ as 102,2 K $, would it be correct (=will it be the same)?

Thank you.

We would writeone hundred and two thousand, two hundred dollars as $102,000. If we had to be precise to the cent, it would be $102,000.00

I need to express the number in a short form.
If I write 102,2 K $, will it be the same as 102.200,00 $?

Did you not notice how and where I had placed $/,/.​ in my response to your question?

Yes, I did.
But in Europe most people (I mean people I faced with) tend to write as follows: 102.200,00 $.

English-speaking places use commas for thousands separators and decimal points for decimals. We put the currency symbol to the left of the number without a space. We don't put a space between a numeral and a power indicator like K or M.

Following these rules, you can write $102.2K. Even in places where the conventions are different, I think it's best to follow English-language conventions when writing in English.

In every variety of English I'm aware of, the dollar (or pound or Euro, etc.) sign is placed before the number:

$300

Also, the thousands separator is a comma (,), and the decimal point is a period (.).

$3,000.00 (correct)
3.000,00$ (incorrect)

In more informal settings, you can write $3K instead of $3,000.

For fractional currencies like cents, pence, etc., the symbol comes after the number: 50p, 25¢, etc.
