How to read 12.5%? I've place it on Google Translate and heard じゅうにてんパーセント, is it correct?

The ・ here is used as the "." would be used in English: to distinguish the round and the decimal part. So it is indeed read as 点{てん}.

So you would read the whole thing as [12]{じゅうに}[・]{てん}[5]{ご}[%]{パーセント}.


The correct pronunciation is :
じゅう に てん ご パーセント


It is not correct. Its pronunciation is Jū ni-ten go pāsento. (じゅう に てん ご ぱーせんと)
