These Are 6 Considerations for Automating Localization Testing

Automating Localization Testing

Localization testing is challenging for software teams to automate, so many simply don’t do it. But, the juice is worth the squeeze–there is a myriad of benefits to multilingual Automated Testing!

Using Hardware-in-the-Loop in Automotive Software Testing

Testing embedded systems for cars is a daunting task. Today’s modern cars can contain up to 100 or more electronic control units (ECUs). ECUs today control essentially every major function of a car, from acceleration to braking. Furthermore, not all of the ECUs are not manufactured by the same company; thus, it may be difficult to start testing until all the components come together in a prototype car—and by that time, there might not be enough time to completely ensure that the car is ready for the road!

The ROI of Test Automation

Building a suite of automated tests is arguably better than maintaining an army of manual testers, but it can still feel like a leap of faith—especially if this is your first attempt. According to LogiGear’s State of Software Survey Testing, only 19% of respondents were successful with Test Automation implementations the first time.  Convincing key stakeholders in your organisation who aren’t as knowledgeable about Software Testing and Test Automation often needs the oomph of data and numbers.
