Globalization QA roles

Many technology companies need bilingual people to provide linguistic testing for their localized software releases.  Oftentimes, technology companies such as Google, Cisco, Linked-in or eBay bring linguistic testers on for contract positions.  There is an additional ongoing need for globalization QA engineers to provide functional testing for both the internationalized and localized software.  The skillset is more technical.  There is often a need for experience with  tools automation, the ability to read code, debug, log bugs and even write test cases. 

Oftentimes, an L10n tester or i18n tester is a full time role and an important contributor to the globalization team.  If you would like to go in this direction, taking courses in test automation, programming languages or more focused training/coursework in localization or internationalization testing would be a good idea (see jobs ) .
