What verb is used for unit conversion?


#1

There are multiple ways to say “to convert something into something”, but which verb is specifically used when I talk “I need to convert 1 kg into grams” or “Exchange 1000 yen into british pounds”. Basicly what is used for matimatical unit conversions?


#2

The word for unit conversion is 単位変換 that brings up the unit conversion on google.jp . 両替 is the noun for currency exchange. So it may vary on what conversion you’re talking about in the end.

変換する (へんかん)
両替する (りょうがえ)
換える (かえる)

I can’t give you specifics on which is the best as that I haven’t been corrected when I’ve used some of these, but perhaps this corpus could help you narrow your choices?
