Note the following:

For numbers ending in one 21, 31, up to 61 there is an added “et” (and). Literally twenty and one.

For numbers from 71 to 79 these translate to “sixty eleven”, “sixty twelve” and so on up to “sixty nineteen”

For numbers from 91 to 99 these translate to “eighty eleven”, “eighty twelve” and so on up to “eighty nineteen”
