A Note on globalization testing?











Sponsored Links:



The goal of globalization testing is to detect potential problems in application design that could inhibit globalization. It makes sure that the code can handle all international support without breaking functionality that would cause either data loss or display problems. Globalization testing checks proper functionality of the product with any of the culture/locale settings using every type of international input possible. 

Proper functionality of the product assumes both a stable component that works according to design specification, regardless of international environment settings or cultures/locales, and the correct representation of data.

The following must be part of your globalization-testing plan:
Decide the priority of each component

To make globalization testing more effective, assign a testing priority to all tested components. Components that should receive top priority:
Support text data in the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) format
Extensively handle strings (for example, components with many edit controls)
Use files for data storage or data exchange (e.g., Windows metafiles, security configuration tools, and Web-based tools)
