Linguistic Testing

Linguistic testing is the process of systematically verifying the translated strings on each software screen to ensure correct translations.

show more

CSOFT uses only professional in-country translators with subject matter expertise for linguistic testing and verification. Our linguistic testing usually covers the following issues during testing:

  • Checking that all UI strings have been translated (both hard coded and external resource strings)
  • Checking that concatenations are resolved properly
  • Checking that there is terminological and stylistic consistency between menu items and dialog box titles
  • Checking that accented characters display and print properly
  • Checking that localized text wraps and hyphenation is correct, and that alphabetical/numerical sorting rules are observed
  • Checking that hot key assignment is consistent with the target operating system
  • Checking that abbreviations have been used when required by interface design

Cosmetic Testing

For software localization, cosmetic testing is an essential step to ensure the localized GUI is free of truncation, misalignment, and other layout issues.

In addition to employing one of the largest localization testing teams in the industry to efficiently perform cosmetic testing, we have developed a framework for automated test case execution, checking for things like string truncations, ensuring the accuracy of online help/links, and overlapping controls. Our testing team will be responsible for hotkey testing and fixing cosmetic bugs such as:

  • Checking that all dialog boxes are properly resized without truncation
  • Checking that all hot keys in dialog boxes and menus are unique
  • Checking that extended characters display as expected
  • Checking that all buttons are aligned and sizing of screen elements is consistent and aesthetically pleasing
  • Checking that dialog boxes and menus display properly using regional settings.

User Interface Localization

Using CSOFT for the localization of both the software user interface and user manual guarantees that the same linguists are working on all components of a particular project, ensuring translation consistency and minimizing costs.

Localization Testing

The purpose of localization testing is to ensure that the quality of the localized application matches that of the source product.

show more

The localization testing environment is the software installed in the operating system of the target languages. Once localized, the software needs to be verified on different platforms to see if the translated options properly populate the target dialog boxes and all the hot keys use unique letters.

CSOFT has practical experience localizing a variety of software applications.

We have the expertise and solutions to tackle all of your software localization challenges no matter how technical. The following lists some of the software projects we have helped our clients localize for global deployment:

Programming Software

A common type of computer software that allows programmers to write computer applications for a variety of purposes. Popular programming software includes C, C++, Java, PHP, but there are many, many more.

Virtual Machine

A VM is a software-based implementation that simulates a physical computer OS allowing rapid duplication and distribution of virtual computers electronically or over the web. Virtual machines play a very important role in today’s cloud computing world as a large number of virtual servers are created on the fly to support the management of extremely large amounts of data.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

CRM is an enterprise application designed to manage a company’s customer base. CRM can help a business forecast sales revenue, and organize, automate, and synchronize sales management, marketing, customer service, and technical support.

Database Software

Software applications used to store and share business information needed to operate the enterprise. Database software can be used in one of three ways: web-based, desktop, or server database.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

ERP is a business management software with a suite of integrated applications to allow a business to store, manage, and share information from every stage of business operation such as product planning, R&D, manufacturing, marketing and sales, inventory control, shipping and invoicing.

Payroll Software

Payroll software manages payroll taxes, employee salaries, and independent contractors’ payments. The software also preserves vital records of such transactions for financial analysis and reports.

Application Software

Application software consists of a broad range of software types that allow people to accomplish specific tasks on both desktop and mobile devices. Business software, databases, educational software, and games are some examples of application software.

Inventory Management Software

Software applications that help an organization track and manage its goods and materials by optimizing inventory level and the flow of goods in the organization to achieve the best operational efficiency.

Apps

Software applications that run on cell phones and tablet computers. Apps are becoming increasingly popular as more people access the internet through their mobile devices versus desktop computers.

System Software

System software refers to the operating systems; device drivers, utilities, servers, and resource files that help to manage and run the computer.

Computer Aided Design (CAD)

CAD assists in the design, analysis, optimization, and automation of product engineering and manufacturing. Computer aided engineering (CAE) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) all belong to this category. CAD plays a critical role in today’s advanced R&D and manufacturing of goods.

Billing Software

Billing software automates the process of creating and managing invoices within an organization. Ready-to-use templates are often included in billing software that can be customized for specific business needs.

Asset Management Software

Businesses use asset management software to manage physical sales of assets and distribution or manufacturing of products. The software automates the task of managing physical and intangible assets to generate such information as depreciation value and dates for replacement, as well as many other functions.

Data Backup & Recovery Software

Data backup and recovery software allows users to specify what is to be backed up in addition to simple copying of data files. The software also preserves the original organization of files and allows a more efficient retrieval of the backed-up data.

Malware

Malware refers to any malicious software that is a threat to computer security. Adware, spyware, computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, and scareware are all types of malware.

Inventory Management Software

Software applications that help an organization track and manage its goods and materials by optimizing inventory level and the flow of goods in the organization to achieve the best operational efficiency.

Storage Software

Storage software is designed to manage data replication, provisioning, snapshots, and backup. Both network-attached storage (NAS) that uses dedicated hard-disk storage devices and storage area networks (SAN) that use dedicated networks are storage software applications.
