    Is it best to change V to Fifth when translating this sentence into English?

    Thanks!

    Only with "th" added (Vth). If you don't want to write out "fifth" you also could put "5th".

    I've double-checked and confirmed that Vth (VIth, etc.) can be and is used.
    I've edited my first response accordingly.

    Thanks again Aztlaniano. Though I must say that I have seldom seen Vth, VIth, etc. used.
