Multilingual Testing: How to test multilingual applications?


In the year 2008, I wrote about several tips to test multi-lingual applications. In order to perform this testing in the correct way, you need to be aware of and address the following issues:

1. Unrealistic test environment
2. Lack of correct translations
3. Navigating the application with the GUI in an unknown language
4. Not testing all labels, controls or the data
5. Not considering the cultural issues in unknown languages
