.Web Site for Russian-English translations. We want 2 web sites which would be similar & should be made using the same coding. The reason we want 2 similar sites is because they have 2 types of clients.
“To begin with I know precisely how our site should, and will look. I want our site to closely resemble
[url removed, login to view] - in layout, inner workings, color scheme – everything. The above link refers you to the site’s home page, and all of our inner pages will look like
[url removed, login to view] . So, the question “can you create a duplicate of the above site?” is the first order of a day, then.
We want to make our web site
super-conservative both in appearance and content while also being brief
in content. That means the appearance of the site and its graphical
design will carry out most of the burden, not the content. I am not even sure I want the flash opening – maybe yes, but it will have to be very low-key and appropriately conservative.
1. Payment page – no PayPal, credit cards only and information to pay by wire transfer, check etc.
2. No content is yet available, but since it is the design and graphics
of the site that will (hopefully) make an impact, content will be
minimal and will be ready within several days. However, from day one
site will be that of dual language (English/Russian) with both languages
located on the same page – not simultaneously, of course. What I am
trying to say is that only the text on the page will be changing with
push of an Eng/Russ button – all the other workings of the page will
remain on the screen (see the above site).
I do not think we will use any photographs – graphic drawings, however,
will be used extensively throughout the site.
3. The domain [url removed, login to view] is already ours.
4. Short intro, probably several scenes from business and professional life.
5. Color scheme will be copied from the site above”
Ok, I am nearly done understanding what is it we want from our internet
site. Let me spend several minutes and try to convey our thoughts to you:From the onset, we will have not 1 but 2 websites; First, and our main site will be located at domain [url removed, login to view] and will be med at sophisticated users of our most expensive services such as translation and proofreading of financial reports, business correspondence etc. Second, much smaller in appearance and content site will be parked at domain not yet chosen, and will be aimed at much less sophisticated clientele from whom we expect one off and infrequent, inexpensive jobs, still requiring our expertise and [url removed, login to view] we are not quite yet ready to finalize our main site, we are ready to proceed with 2nd, and actually want to order it and have it up and running in 10days.
I will start working on content as soon as we agree on the design,
– however, the site is very simple and will only consist of
several pages. I want both of my site to be similar, or identical in
appearance – so all the work you do on this small site can be applied to
our main site, on which we’ll start working as soon as this smaller site is ready.
I waant site to be static in appearance, and only central part of the
screen (marked on my ppd by lines) slide out or disappear with the push
of the button, giving room to another measure of content, just like it
is done on [url removed, login to view] site.
I hope what I wrote is enough to give you an idea what we want from this site – basically it will promote web translations services; initially
will only offer Russian-English language pairs, and later expand into
all the world languages, too.
Contact page, quotation and payment page will be the same on both sites.
Also, I have never been involved in the online payment services
(although I used to be AMEX and Visa merchant). You advice will also be appreciated.”
One more thing is the next . We need a tech person to update the site from time to time, so tell me how much you would charge for that monthly.
As for hosting I believe it will be at EASYCGI.
Work should be started today!
