Weew-Waaw, Thai to English, Thai to Russian transcription
I'm working on a project of rule-based Thai transcription: (the link is temporarily unavailable)
Technically, it is written in F# with a C# front-end.
I would be happy to get acquainted with those who are experienced with NLP (Natural Language Processing), just ping me in the SE chat. :-)

comment Converting emoticons to images in chatroom: how to test this?
-1: Consider expanding your question. An emoticon has a lifecycle within a program, and there are too many places where it can appear: upon input, it may be text parsing (as noted by @corsiKa) or clicking on a supplementary toolbar, or both at the same time; at database level, they might be stored in a special manner (e.g. if the emoticon set is dynamic) or, again, stored as plain text; they may be retrieved and displayed in a certain manner; the missing identifiers must be processed somehow, and so on. Without knowing your app, your question is unlikely to be answered.

comment How to test a location based application
@Rsf As SQA, I should not understand every aspect of the software I'm working on; sometimes it can even be harmful. :) However yes, I have to understand basic principles of modularization in order to test effectively. This is how I understood the original question.

comment Should tester fix bugs?
@BjRollison Yes, really. Using archaic V-model is caused by two reasons: (1) the philosophic nature of the original Q; (2) misunderstanding of the basic principles in some comments. There are many improvements over the V-model occurred for recent decade, but they still solve the same problem: imperfection of the human nature. Having same person doing opposite tasks leads to problems caused by human imperfection. Large companies (as in Q) may try various solutions, but I'm absolutely certain they grasp the ancient V-model first before trying to "hack" it.

@BjRollison The analogy is not correct. Unit Tests and Acceptance Tests are totally different ones, they are set in different phases of SDLC, initiated by different people ("hats"), and performed by different people. See this answer for details. Continuing the analogy, unit tests are done on a metal working factory, checking whether or not the metal has air bubbles or the proper percentage of carbon within.

@PhilKirkham Continuing a housing metaphor, it's everyone's own decision whether to wait 6 months or to die when a ceiling falls due to the very same nails problem. I prefer to wait. :-) Returning back to SQA, the specs are the ultimate judge. If it says the "nails" must be 1.25 inch, and they are not, the testing should fail, the issue raised to the developers, and so on. However, QA engineers often compromise with themselves by accepting/sticky-tape-fixing something that is indeed broken. And we see the results here and there. See Andrew's comment above.

comment Should tester fix bugs?
@PhilKirkham No, because it may appear that all planks are loose, and you have found just a single one. Attempting to fix it by yourself is likewise attaching it with a sticky tape, instead of finding that, e.g., all nails are 0.75 inch long instead of 1.25 inch. I've seen some houses like that. And some softwares! :)

comment Should tester fix bugs?
@PhilKirkham A common goal does not imply the same responsibilities. If I build a house and I'm the same person who runs an acceptance commission, would you trust such a commission enough to live in my house, or would you require an independent commission to verify my work?

comment What is automation testing and why do we need it?
Hello Hadar and welcome to SQA.SE. Consider expanding your answer by adding a brief summary of the referenced article. See How to Answer, section "Provide context for links". The article seems to contain a good content, but a brief summary would make your answer more valuable for those who read it in the future.

comment What are the test cases or test scenarios for palindrome
@dzieciou I agree this is very questionable whether or not pure tests of the implementation algorithm should be in QA responsibility in the real world. Maybe it is better if such test existed among unit tests (and was written by a coder). Nevertheless, you asked for a bad implementation, and here it is. :)

comment What are the test cases or test scenarios for palindrome
@dzieciou It depends on how a programming language rounds integer division results. Most round half up, so the coder would automatically use (str.length-1)/2 as upper margin for the for loop. (7-1)/2 == (6-1)/2 == 3 which is fine. The same code in C# will result (6-1)/2 == 2.

comment Can I (in Eclipse/java) automate the logging of all enters and leaves into or out of all functions, including library ones?
What is your ultimate goal? Do you need to be informed when your method is called in a real time? Or to count how many times the method is invoked during a certain usage session? Or maybe you need performance measurement / stress testing? Depending on your needs, there may be different approaches.
