The dictionary translates "Yuan" both as Yuan and Dollar, so can I translate it as Euro or Yen as well?

You would translate American dollar as 美元 “mei yuan" and euro is 欧元 "ou yuan", etc. Yuan does translate to dollar, but it is kind of informal. It is kind of like saying "One buck", so you've got a little bit of wiggle room with the word.

No, Euro is 欧元 and Yen is 日元. Other examples are 美元 for American dollar, 英镑 for British pound and China's currency, "Yuan", is really 人民币.

It's the name of the currency that China uses, equal to approximately 0.15 USD or 0.13 Euros or 17.31 Japanese Yen

Yuan is not technically the currency of China. The currency of China is 人民币, Yuan is a kind of informal term when you are talking about it from Chinese, but it is called the Chinese Yuan in English, which basically translates to "Chinese Dollar"

Did you write out ten or put it down numerically? When you write "ten yuan" it should be correct

It is wrong because 10 yuan is a phrase and not just a number

Ok, I'm from HK and I would have translated this as "Ten dollars" rather than ten yuan. Plz don't have people bash me for being from HK, but I'm just saying... this is how I would've translated it
