However, this is no longer the case, and the word has been used unambiguously to mean one thousand million for some time. The alternative term "one thousand million" is rare and is used primarily to ease understanding among non-native speakers of English, as many other languages use words similar to "billion" to mean one trillion. In the South Asian numbering system, it is known as 100 crore or 1 Arab. The term milliard can also be used to refer to 1,000,000,000; whereas "milliard" is seldom used in English, variations on this name often appear in other languages.
