I’m new here. I would love to learn from people’s experience on Crowdsourced testing. and localization testing.
I have tried my hand at Crowdsourced testing but I didn’t quite like it.
While from the company point of view, it may be cost effective, but it has quite a few disadvantages, especially from the tester point of view. I have interacted with other testers and they too are of the same opinion:
– There is no ownership of testing
– You are working in an environment where you have to beat other testers to find defects (in order to get paid). This impacts the way you test.
– Many times you may not be paid equivalent to the time and efforts you have spent
– It is very likely that some parts are not tested at all, so test coverage can also be an issue
As a tester, I prefer outsourced testing to crowdsourced testing
