you mean

string fr_double =

There is something missing in this function. The intermediary class.

Anyway I don't think we need a specific function for this specific case. I would prefer to qualify the string class be converted with formatting specifics.
string fr_double = convert_to_using<fr_locale<string>, double>::from(en_locale(en_str));

which can be readen as convert from a string representing a double with the english locale to a string with a french locale.
