What is linguistic testing? And how does it differ from the non-linguistic one? How can one distinguish a good tester from an unskilled one? And most importantly, what should you do with the results? Let’s consider testing of games as an example. The first step is to determine in general what errors can be found in the localization.

“Which technique of testing should be used?” is a common question after test case design. “It depends!” – is the best solution in this case. The choice of the most effective technique determined by the conditions, involving the object’s nature and the testers’ experience.
Brute-Force Attack This technique is often done by different software tools. The main idea of it is that the system is trying to get a password match using the valid ID by attempting to login again and again. The most common example of the security technique against this kind of attack is account blocking for some period of time. This is used by such mailing services as Yahoo! or Hotmail. The user has a number of consecutive attempts (mostly 3 ones) to login the account. If these attempts fail, the system blocks the account for a while (the time of blocking varies from 30 minutes to 24 hours).
Application Access It doesn’t matter if it is website of desktop application – all the options in access security are implemented by “Roles and Rights Management”. This is often has to be done implicitly when covering functionality: for example, the receptionist in the hospital is hardly concerned about the medical tests in the lab because his job is to register patients appointments. That’s why he has no access to the menus, forms and other information related to lab tests as his Role in the Hospital Management System is “Receptionist”.
