Systematic Validation of Localisation Across All Languages
|Volume 7 Issue 1
|Author: Martin Ørsted
As software companies increase the number of markets and languages that they release their products in, it may
become necessary to change the localisation process for these products. Quality assurance (QA) is often viewed as
an area where processes could be streamlined through automation and one method for doing this would be through
the design of a localisation verification system that can validate single resources across languages as well as check
for generic issues across multiple resources and languages. This article outlines a graduated approach to systemically
capture and fix issues when a product is being localised into an increasing number of languages. By examining
multiple languages, patterns can be identified that enable the identification of inconsistencies and issues that,
with a single language approach, would have been very costly and difficult to unearth.
