this method can be used to engage community in QA activity at large scale.
Please provide feedback and suggestions for the ^^ document.

For this testing
purpose Deckard (A web based glade runner) can be of
some help. Manoj Giri earlier tried testing with Deckard after Dogtail
got deprecated. I came to know about Deckard only after Runa gave a demo
presentation about Deckard at Wikimedia language summit. Deckard will be
really helpful for the above purpose as it dynamically displays the UI
of the selected module in desired language. Moreover, the displayed UI
can be used as a real UI which is better than a screenshot. The only
shortcoming is that at one time only language can be selected i.e, there
is no provision for selecting both source and target language. I wrote a
mail to Deckard's developer requesting this feature change in reply to
which he suggested me a simple workaround which can the serve the above
purpose. An addon named split-panel needs to added to Firefox and two
panel of the same page opens up in the browser window allowing us to
display the UIs side by side in both English and native language.
However, this instance of Deckard has only Gnome modules at present and
there is no provision to add other projects to it. The developer says
for other projects like LibreOffice, a separate instance of Deckard has
to be created. Moreover, only the latest gnome modules are available for
testing. There is no provision for selecting the older gnome versions.
All these feature changes can be done and will take some time but for
now I feel using the panel splitting method the testing purpose can be
