Localization Testing is a software testing technique, where the product is checked to assure that it behaves according to the local culture or settings. In other words, it is a process of customizing software application as per the targeted language and country. The major area affected by localization testing includes content and UI.
It is a process of testing a globalized application whose UI, default language, currency, date, time format and documentation are designed as per the targeted country or region. It ensures that the application is capable enough for using in that particular country.
In this type of testing, many different testers will repeat the same functions. They verify various things like typographical errors, cultural appropriateness of UI, linguistic errors, etc.
It is also called as “L10N“, because there has 10 characters in between L & N in the word localization.
