comment Should tool generated test data be deleted during tear down in test automation?
Yea, Good Suggestion, Better than timestamps, Test Data can be unique. Also, you can check if Test_Run version (Unique number - MMDDYYHH_RUNCOUNT) can be added while emailing results, writing results in tables.

comment Do you verify presence of text in your automated tests?
Yep, Testing the API would be good enough to validate locale specific content is returned. I agree to this approach (80% Test cases be checked at API Level). Sample testing can be done for basic cases to required check content displayed for locale.

comment Should tool generated test data be deleted during tear down in test automation?
Yes, I agree glowcoder suggestion. The cleanup of data generated during test run, modifying entries to default initial test run need to be done. Other alternative is deleting the test database. Even if you use existing email_Id the timestamp of new test run would help to identify if this email is generated for latest test run or previous one.

Yes. There were defects. Example1 - In a particular locale text was changed before feature launch, Example2 - Localization strings were missed in certain locales only English was displayed.

The logic is - these text content would be changed time to time for a locale / all locales. We read it from XML based on locale, id from an XML file. This method would help you run your test across locales. This would help you to scale your automation across locales. If you pass locale value as parameter to invoke tests. This should be used for picking right strings to be checked for that locale. I have seen it successfully used last couple of years in my previously organization.

comment Testing a live and staging site with Selenium IDE
I have a selenium script i created sometime back, (sqlandsiva.blogspot.com/search/label/…). This code needs refactoring. Getting started from this. Parse all the elements obtain the values and store it in a text file. Next when you parse in another environment compare it and report the result. It is still possible as long as the id's to identify are the same in both the environments.
