On the other hand, perhaps because one of the three language options is English (the other two are Español and Português), the sine key is still labeled sin. Well, nothing is perfect...

Good point. Smile

Agree, in Portugal we use comma as well, like the Germans do.

That LA X version looks similar to the DE X German version, using comma and international names for the trig functions in the keys labels.

But the SP X is the Iberian version, meaning that the vast majority of the buyers would be Spanish's ones. I wonder if nuestros hermanos neighbors in fact use the dot instead, like the EN versions. However traditionally Spain translates almost all of the foreign terms to Castelhano, hence the terms "sen".

Being Spanish, I think I can answer your question,

We use comma to separate decimals. Which is a nightmare every time you prepare a document in English or (sometimes) try to use Excel or any other data processing software.

Now that I look more carefully, I notice they also substituted arcsen for sin-1.
While we are at it, turns out that according to Wikipedia Catalans use "sinus" and "cosinus" to denominate the trigonometric functions:

Seems that making an Iberian version is harder a task than Casio may think.

Any body knows how many functions has got the LA X version?
