Please specify "dynamically switch".

I'm pretty sure that Interchange is buggy with switching locales. There are
a number of reports which describe odd behaviour of Interchange, especially
dropping fractional numbers. For one thing, you cannot switch the currency
twice on an Interchange page without wreaking havoc. Though I'm really
interested in Interchange's i18n features, I fear I cannot do much about
it due to limited resources.
I'm sorry that I'm not able to give you and others more help in this respect.
