Globalization Testing

Globalization Testing ensures the application can function in any culture/locale. 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. The following must be part of your globalization-testing plan:

1.) 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).

2.) Select a test platform,

3.) Create the test environment,

4.) Execute tests,

5.) Recognize the problems.

LIFE begins when we loose,

LIFE ends when we win,

So, make sure that you always win.
