French Software Testing
French software testing is a crucial quality control phase in the process of French software globalization. Target users of French software have the same high standards for functionality as users of the original software. In order to meet the expectations of French software users, a localization company must use experienced French software testers and follow a defined software testing process.
Whether it is performed on-site or off-site, French software testing should be executed by professional, native-speaking specialists. Working from a thorough test plan and test scripts/cases, the French testing team will use a combination of manual and automated tests, as well as bug tracking tools, to locate and fix critical software defects before release.
It is very common for French software testing professionals (typically translators and engineers) to work side-by-side with a company's own expert users to go through the following software testing phases:
French Software Internationalization Testing
Before French software translation begins, French software testing professionals test the source language software for international support and localizability. French software internationalization testing saves time and money by exposing potential trouble areas early in the localization process.
French Software Localization Testing
After French software translation, testing specialists review the French software in context to check for any linguistic or cosmetic issues. Linguistic testing deals with all language-related issues of a localized application, including currency symbols, locale-specific text, and more. Cosmetic testing deals with all visual issues such as the proper display of menus, messages and dialog boxes.
French Software Functionality Validation or Testing
After your French software has been localized, tests are performed using a variety of platforms and test scripts to verify that your application works properly for your target users. Testing concerns at this phase include ensuring that the application correctly installs and that all features work as they did in the original source language version of the application.
