Our software has mainly been used in the UK and US, but is now being used in more European countries and we are coming across problems with the differing locales. So I want to write a general 'regional settings' checklist that can be run against existing and new functionality to ensure that these problems are found early.
I'm thinking about things like, differing date and number formats, different languages used in filling in forms etc. We aren't talking about changing the language of the system though (keeping with universal english).
Does anyone have examples of tests that can be run for this sort of thing?
If you are under windows, perhaps you don't need to write anything, just set-up one very strange environment, installing e.g. German windows and set everything you could in "Control Panel->Regional Options" to values that differ from U.S. (e.g. time separator, etc.).
P.S. Also ask developers to do code review for such things as hard-coded "everyone" security group - we once had such a bug.
