We are a multinational group developing a multilingual study abroad website currently in Chinese and English. We are looking for a Python/Django programmer to help us setup a Django prototype website, specifically we would like to setup an initial multilingual CMS/Catalogue in English (that can be translated via PO-files to Chinese).
We have collected info on over 4000 international universities and language schools and some 2000+ with detailed statistics as well as photos (available in either excel or mysql files). We can adapt the layout and final templates so the most important is the CMS, and simple sample informational templates of sample schools, countries, and news/info pages.
Ideally, we are looking for someone that can adapt (and already has experience using) existing Django technology:
(1.) a Django CMS,
(2.) an e-commerce configuration (for example, perhaps using Satchmo ([url removed, login to view]) or Lightning Fast Shop ([url removed, login to view]))
(3.) django multilingual system for multilingual content / translation ([url removed, login to view] OR [url removed, login to view] OR something else similar)
(4.) !IMPORTANT! a setup to handle internationalization (via PO editor translation for the application (perhaps also able to use Django Pootle ([url removed, login to view]) for the translation process)
(5.) django-localeurl ([url removed, login to view]) so languages are handled like url/en/some-url-page or url/zh/some-url-page
Obviously we also need a well-formed database in SQL to efficiently deal with multilingual static and dynamic content.
Please send us your CV and/or references and/or links to similar project you have worked on as well as a sample proposal of what modules, configuration and timeframe you would propose to complete this project.
Emphasis on candidates with previous experience with internationalization/localization projects.
Project details available upon request.
I look forward to hearing your proposal soon!
