Cómo se pronuncia los números ...

¿Cómo se pronuncia correctamente los números largos, años, y los decimales cuando se habla? Por ejemplo:

4.600 en español es igual a 4,600 en inglés, así cuando estoy hablando, ¿lo pronuncio, «cuatro mil, seiscientos,» «cuarenta y seiscientos,» o «cuatro punto seis mil»?

a la inversa:

2,38 en español es igual a 2.38 en inglés, así ¿cómo lo pronuncia, «dos treinta y ocho,» o qué?

y los años:

¿lo pronuncia, «veinte doce,» o «dos mill y doce?»

Estoy agredecido por su ayuda. Yo sé que esto parecen preguntas tontas, pero quiero hablarlo correctamente.

We use both 2,38 and 2.38 (may be by the use of calculators and computers ).
How do we know what 2.345 is? I suppose it depends on the context.

"muchas gracias"

Now I remembered 2,38 can also be "dos treinta y ocho". For example it is usual when talking about stature:

Mi hermano mide uno setenta y cinco (1,75).
