Ranorex query - multiple languages

Post by sivakumaran » Mon Feb 06, 2017 8:22 am

dear all,

How do you test your product for multiple UI languages

Solution 1
In our test solution we maintain text resources for various multiple UI languages
Here I see a maintainability issue, because the test has to maintain these translations
Has to maintain translations per UI language

solution 2
the application under test (AUT) itself offers a scripting API
the test will maintain only English texts
the test will ask the scripting API to provide a translated text providing a English text

which solution is appropriate is question?

thanks,
Siva

You don't have to maintain text resources... Why on earth would you rely on such things? Could you provide some hands-on experience examples? What about specifying other elements in upward direction by using Indexes, Regex or other possible properties?
