Polish Software Testing

Polish software testing is a crucial quality control phase in the process of Polish software globalization. Target users of Polish software have the same high standards for functionality as users of the original software. In order to meet the expectations of Polish software users, a localization company must use experienced Polish software testers and follow a defined software testing process.

Whether it is performed on-site or off-site, Polish software testing should be executed by professional, native-speaking specialists. Working from a thorough test plan and test scripts/cases, the Polish 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 Polish 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:

Polish Software Internationalization Testing

Before Polish software translation begins, Polish software testing professionals test the source language software for international support and localizability. Polish software internationalization testing saves time and money by exposing potential trouble areas early in the localization process.

Polish Software Localization Testing

After Polish software translation, testing specialists review the Polish 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.

Polish Software Functionality Validation or Testing

After your Polish 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.
