  • 3. Website Globalization
    In order to keep their members and constituents up-to-date on the latest developments in the Western Hemisphere, the Inter-American Economic Council (IAEC) www.inter-american.org needed a dynamic, multilingual database-driven website which their staff could update on a daily basis without delays, excessive website update costs, and without keeping a technical webmaster on salary full time. Their old static site, and the content workflow required to keep it updated, was simply not cost-effective or time-efficient.
    Aboutthe Project
  • 4. Website Globalization
    Aboutthe Project
    The IAEC had a limited budget, and in October of 2002 with two key events looming, had limited time to create a new site. The new website launch had to coincide with two key events for the IAEC which included a January 23, 2003 Annual Winter Award Gala and the January 15 to 19 2003 Antigua and Barbados Business Roundtables.
  • 5. Website Globalization
    Aboutthe Project
    After researching a multitude of website localization firms, the IAEC chose Globalization Partners International (GPI) to design, develop and implement their new website in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
    GPI gathered and reviewed all of the IAEC's requirements and provided a comprehensive proposal to provide a multilingual, database-driven website that was powered by a content management system (CMS) that non-technical staff could use from any location via a browser, and at a price that the small not-for-profit organization's budget could handle. The project involved the full design and development of the new website, from submission and approval of design comps, through localization of content into Spanish and Portuguese, and installation and training on the web content management system.
