comment Format of the test report
I think you are missing the point. If the report recipient needs to manipulate the data you send them in the report, .pdf format might be less useful than .xls (for example). The use case drives the format you should use.

comment Format of the test report
Who reads this report? What will they do with this report? What do they need to see? All communications need to be created with the recipient in mind.

comment What are some nice sources for User-Agent strings?
Remember that users can come to your site using any user agent string they choose - real or made up. Thus, you should consider testing using strings you create to intentionally "stess" your parser. Base those strings on your knowledge of your parser's design.

comment Checking two related functionalities in same test case
Does it matter that "100% failure" is sent to management? What would they do differently if you indicated "50% failure" instead? (Sometimes these are metrics without much meaning)

comment Web Portal localization testing estimation as % of estimated functional testing efforts?
All excellent points! When you estimated these projects, did you use a "percent of total test time" formula?

comment Web Portal localization testing estimation as % of estimated functional testing efforts?
I wish I could give you the answer that you are seeking "10% for the common language and 30% for the uncommon language". But that's not what I've done in the past, because I don't think it works that way. My estimates were always expressed in man-months of effort, and only after I understood the design of what I was up against. They were never a percentage of some other set of tasks. Sorry.

I'd be happy to hear you indicate that the Internationalization project will come before the first Localization project, as they are distinct efforts in my mind.

But is the system already sufficiently internationalized? That's one of the critical factors here.
