Abstract

Recently, wireless technologies have had a tremendous influence on various advanced technology areas through e-learning environments such as the use of smart devices to engage learners and encourage them to interact effectively. Wireless communication technologies are being widely adopted within the education sector in order to deliver the best education support both virtually and globally. Today, introducing a multilingual Wireless Response System (WRS) application is not only an enormous challenge but also a complex one. The aim of this paper is to implement an internationalization-testing strategy using a WRS case study for multilingual speakers of Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Romanian, Spanish and Turkish. It also aims to evaluate the internationalization testing results as well as localization and cultural testing impacts. This paper also attempts to identify the various challenges that are associated with internationalization and localization testing based on smart devices, as well as introducing a globalization testing model for a multilingual system that includes each language’s specific features, for instance: the direction of writing for some languages such as right language (Arabic and Urdu), and word spaces translating.
