    No, not in any form of notation.
    Using periods as separators the number is:
    1.252.729.000
    Using commas:
    1,252,729,000
    In each case, the word "billion" must not be added.

    Alternatively, you could perhaps write:
    1.252729 billion
    1,252729 billion with a comma for the decimal point
