Localization testing is oriented to check the application’s capability to support the multilingual UI, functions and to solve localization problems (language translation, date/time format, postal addresses, name and surname order, currency, etc.) For its successful performance, the tester needs special tools:
- eggPlant – is an image-based localization tool that ensures whether the text is shown correctly on the screen.
- Alchemy Catalyst – this software localization testing tool helps the professional translators to avoid multiple sentence translations.
- SDL Passolo – one of the best tools for localization that provides access to machine translation services, terminology management and language support due to intuitive UI.
