I have website where users can use the language of their preference.
So far, a user can choose between English and Dutch. When they want to store the numeric value 0.25, they need to enter 0.25 for English and 0,25 for Dutch. So far it works fine.
Now comes the problem. I want to do some clientside calculations base on the user input, just for their clarity. I have 2 input fields (both with decimal values), I want to divide them and show the result in another input field.

Not directly. Your best option is to use a temporary variable to do calculations. With that variable, string replace all commas to periods. Then do the calculations.

Yes, js speaks "English". You would need to take input "number" as text and then manually parse it converting to real number (detect language and then replace comma with dot if it's Dutch).

I had a nightmare last night. I was dreaming that Iím 64-bit and my blanket is 32-bit and I couldnít cover myself with it, so Iíve spent the whole night freezing. And in the morning I find that my blanket just had fallen off the bed. =S (from: bash.org.ru)

Ok that's clear.
In the mean while, I found a JQuery plugin that can do calculations in English en Dutch format.
