Home/MicroTalk: Building a Scalable Linguistic Testing Process
The corona virus pandemic is weighing on us all now – personally and professionally. The LocWorld team is well and we hope you are, also.
Regarding LocWorld42 in Berlin, we are in negotiations with our conference venue, the InterContinental Berlin, and are forced to wait for further developments in Germany before we can make a definitive announcement. Meanwhile, we are investigating opportunities for a virtual and safely-distant way to get together, network and learn. We promise to let you know more as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding.

Language quality assurance (LQA) has traditionally been performed by in-house linguists running test cases on devices. However, in recent years the scale of products and localization activity have strained our ability to perform LQA via this small, in-house operation. Challenges such as device distribution and management, technical support for distributed linguists, as well as the need to cover a growing list of languages, have forced us to look for new ways to run localized product testing at a larger scale. In this presentation we will share how we’re testing products at a scale not previously possible and with potential to hopefully cover ever-changing needs moving forward.
Takeaways: Attendees will learn about a large-scale approach to in-context linguistic quality review.
