I'd really like to write a Selenium WebDriver test that verifies text is localized. The localization code bases the strings it displays on
navigator.userLanguage for IE). I cannot figure out, however, how to launch a Chromium window for a different language.
I see this bug which sort of explains the problem (closed as not a bug): https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=114606
Here's how I create the browser instance:
var webdriver = require('selenium-webdriver'); var chrome = require("selenium-webdriver/chrome"); var options = new chrome.Options(); options.addArguments('--lang=es'); var caps = options.toCapabilities(); var driver = webdriver.Builder().withCapabilities(caps).build();
I installed the Spanish language, but whereas
es in its list, but even if I move it to the top of the preferences,
en-US is still what
navigator.language is set to.
Have any of you found a way to successfully write multi-language tests with Selenium WebDriver?
