Multi language Testing

Hi All,

This is regarding multi language testing, how we can do the multi language testing in Accessibility testing.

Points which I observed :

1. I am a English user and I will use screen readers to read the content and I can easily validate whether it is reading right or wrong. I am worried about other languages, how to test application if user change the application language in to other language.

My assumption : English user alone can not perform screen reader testing for the other languages, we may require other users who knows the different languages.

2. Do we need to test all the elements in the page in another languages even after testing in English (For Example : Assume that we have fields username, password , etc.. in the login page and we have tested this page with all possible test of accessibility . Do we need to perform the same testing types once after changing the language).
