This is a project to create a community portal for an expatriate community in an Arabic speaking country. This portal will support the general members and their different sections. Each community branch (i.e. Doctors, Engineers, Farmers, ...etc) will have it's own category and under that category they will be able to post their news, have a link to their section in the audio/video gallery, another link to their forum in the discussion forum and the ability to add additional pages. All of which can be achieved using Joomla or any other similar script.
What is needed:
The FRONTEND OF THE WEBSITE MUST BE IN ARABIC LANGUAGE!
I am in need of a web team EXPERIENCED with ARABIC instillations and programming of Joomla or any similar CMS. I will need Joomla and the plugins I choose to be installed. Here is a list of features I will need for community portal:
1) articles management
2) photo gallery
3) video gallery
4) SEO related Joomla plugins
6) home page slide show for featured articles
7) Community Calendar
8) social bookmarking features
There is a possibility of another similar project to this for another site I am developing, so if things go well with this I will continue my relationship with your team.
Some criteria that must be met by the chosen team/professional:
1) available for communication at reasonable time and daily
2) must meet deadlines
3) must be experienced with Joomla and provide sample sites
4) must have great attitude
5) must have a portfolio (or show proof of past work)
I'm a fair and excellent employer, hopefully this will be the beginning for many more projects to come.
