Just a small remark.
Billion and Trillion are English terms and in daily language are used in the short scale. Other languages (e.g. Dutch, German also IIRC) use long scale
I would recommend adding a note to the extension explaining that (especially if it is used with other languages).
see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metric_prefix
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

I would also point out that if this extension is for phpBB 3.3.x then the PHP version must be at least 7.1.3
