Before testing double-byte characters with Silk Test Workbench

Testing an internationalized application, particularly one that contains double-byte characters, is more complicated than testing an application that contains strictly English single-byte characters. Testing an internationalized application requires that you understand a variety of issues, from operating system support, to language packs, to fonts, to working with IMEs and complex languages.

Before you begin testing your application using Silk Test Workbench, you must do the following:

  • Meet the needs of your application under test (AUT) for any necessary localized OS, regional settings, and required language packs.
  • Install the fonts necessary to display your AUT.
  • If you are testing an application that requires an IME for data input, install the appropriate IME.
