Description

Experience Level: Expert
My wife (a translator) is launching a Portuguese poetry in translation website, with the official blessing of the Portuguese equivalent of the Arts Council. However, there is no funding! So this is a small-scale, private initiative.

The site is intended to showcase contemporary Portuguese poetry, translated into English, to the English speaking world. It will be ongoing, with additional and changing material (ie poems and photos).

Brief description of what is needed:
- website design & coding, with the emphasis on simplicity
- a basic and off-the-shelf content management system
- the option to add MP3 voice recordings and transmission for poems [costed as a separate item]
- search engine optimisation
- a logo for the site name

Brief description of structure of the site:
- home page: with logo, blurb and maybe some small photos; featured poem; poets\' names hot-linked to their pages; standard buttons, to be on every page (eg About us, Contact, Home, Links)
- Poet pages (envisaged at this stage to be 20, and this number will grow), with: name; photo; hot-link to biographical page; introduction/blurb; five poems scrolling down the page, both in Portuguese and in English (side by side); hot-links to translator bio page; plus [if financially viable] an icon-link to an audio version of the poem (ideally one in Portuguese and one in English)

The content management system needs to be simple and easy to load text and photos without doing any HTML coding, and making it easy to put in hot-links to pages; and easy to add new standardised pages.

There is some flexibility in this draft spec, and suggestions will be welcome.

* The designer needs to be London based or able to get into central/south London (SW12) easily as we definitely want at least one or two face to face meetings.

This is not time urgent, but needs to be done in the next month or two or thereabouts.

There may be further development work.

Ongoing low online level support is also needed. Please quote for this separately.
