What does a QA tester do?

The primary aim of QA Testers is to ensure that apps or programs function according to their intended design,  beyond mere gaming. They establish and implement testing systems to meet specific standards for each software piece, increasingly utilising automation through script writing.QA Testers seek out bugs that could potentially crash a program or cause significant impact to a user’s experience. As the initial audience for software, their feedback on usability is essential to developing the software. Beyond technical checks, they also check for spelling errors, mistranslations, copyright, and cultural sensitivity issues. In larger projects, teams of QA Testers might work on distinct sections. Once testing is complete, feedback to designers and developers is crucial, as their findings significantly influences the final build of the software.
