in your python file import the following line

from openerp.tools import amount_to_text_en

Then create a function convert in your class in the file

def convert(self, amount, cur):
    amt_en = amount_to_text_en.amount_to_text(amount, 'en', cur)
    return amt_en

Here arguents are amount(float), language and currency. If you want to change the format again, then you can use any of the string operations like replace to replace the string we get from the amount_to_text() function
