Linguistic and Esthetic Testing of Kaspersky Lab Software: a Path from Manual to Automated Testing
Linguistic and esthetic testing of application interfaces plays an important role in application life. You must admit that use of application is much more comfortable when its interface is nice and pretty. Application value increases proportionally with its quality improvement. The presentation will show different approaches to the linguistic and esthetic testing of Kaspersky Lab application interfaces starting from the manual testing and ending with the automated one. We will discuss the effect of localization on an application functionality and its mitigation in details.
