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. Your efforts provide you a sneak preview and a means to contribute to the worldwide success of Microsoft products. You will have the opportunity to measure your efforts against your peers.

LQG - Moderator Role - A LQG - Language Quality Game Moderator role is vital to the game. They wield the power to review, resolve, and post bugs related to the issues the players submit. The players provide the ground work, reviewing the Screen Shots for language issues, highlighting them, and providing comments related, to the issues. Players also are able to tag issues as possible “Ship Stoppers”. The Moderators filter all the player submissions and review each of their Screen Shots. While confirming the issues they can add additional defined highlights and comments to the Screen Shots. Each Player submission is filtered and resolved as a Duplicate, Not Issue, or a New Bug. If confirmed as a “New Bug” the Moderator than posts a “Bug” as a separate submission. Extra priority will be given to the “Ship Stopper” issues that Players submit.
