In respect of the Ordinal, positioning numbers, they are expressed in a different format to English ordinal numbers. In the German language, a period (or full stop) after a number can sometimes mean that the number is not the end of a period, but an ordinal number:

58. / Achtundfϋnfzigste translates as 59th / Fifty-Ninth
