In English thisnumber is a billion. This is very tricky for nations where 'a billion' has 12 zeros. 1,000,000,000,000 in English, however, is a trillion.
But don't worry, these numbers are even a bit problematicfor native speakers: for a long time the British 'billion' had 12 zeros (a number with 9 zeros was called 'a thousand million').
