LQG - Language Quality Game
LQG is a web based experience that allows you to preview components in a variety of Microsoft Products, Projects, or Services. This application allows you to preview Screen Shots in various languages according to your selection(s) in the game. You review the Screen Shots, checking the translation and interpretation of the text provided. You can provide Feedback, either positive or negative according to your observations. You advance through the selections when responding with positive feedback. Choosing negative feedback prompts a dialog that allows you to submit your observations and feedback. Your feedback is recorded and later reviewed for confirmation of the possible issues. Once confirmed, we officially address the negative feedback.
