I have composed a map where shapefiles, points etc. all are in local coordinate system (l-est).

Is it possible to convert it to common WGS84 system?

So that in printed map there are coordinates 23.906250;59.432234 (not local 6506050; 4534232)?

I've tried to change it under items properties -> the CRS selector, but no luck.

At the moment in "QGIS print composer" I have this picture:

    Welcome to GIS.SE. An example image of how you currently incorporate the coordinates in your layout would be helpful in order to answer the question.

  1. In Printcomposer go to Item Properties and scroll down to Grids
  2. Modify your existing grid or create a new one and modify this one

  1. At the top (in appearance) you can change the coordinate system of your grid:

Choose a fitting Interval.

In case you want to to change the projection of your map, you need to do this in your main project:
