Localization Quality Assurance (LQA)

Language Sign Off or LQA,
Whatever You Name It, We Master It

In the context of today’s interconnected world, global enterprises have become increasingly concerned about the quality of their content. Our team ensures consistency and accuracy are maintained throughout your software, websites and that your multimedia will perform consistently across languages, operating systems, browsers and devices, thereby avoiding costly delays and potentially causing errors.

Language acceptance, language signoff or Localization Quality Assurance (LQA) are different names for the same activity/goal. It is performed to guarantee that your localized content will be genuinely perceived by the target market. Therefore, it is not only a translation focus; but it goes further to how the end user would see/accept the language/display.

In brief, it is the process to identify and remove any mistakes that could not be identified during the translation process and to avoid discrepancies and inconsistencies in the final localized project. Our language testers ensure the linguistic checks comply with our quality assessment model. All Saudisoft processes are followed as per ISO standards.

QA testing is a complex process with many moving parts, complexities, and problems that are not always foreseen before the end product is compiled and viewed in its intended form.

Our testers go through the user interface of your localized product to detect errors that may the user may face. Some of these issues include:

Incorrect translation due to lack of context

Character encoding/fonts

Text expansion

User interface design

Locale issues (measurements, time, date)

Problematic line breaks


Functional issues

Device or browser incompatibility

Correct layout, specifically for right-to-left languages to avoid bidirectional issues

With our internally developed tool, TQS, we are able to automate one of our checks in bidirectional languages. Our engineers have helped boost our many checks in bidirectional languages. Our engineers have helped boost our efforts, enabling us to improve, test, and adjust as we go along in the quality assurance process.
