Alright here we go. This is a very complex project that has many parts to it. I need an experienced and well rounded team to work with. This will be built from the ground up.
1. Design/Structure website layout with joomla template
2. Design email newsletter templates to match the site
3. possibly custom component programming
5. MOST IMPORTANT! Must be working with Simplified Chinese language content!!!
6. Forum/Blog/Community component.
The multilingual support is the most important component of this project because the target audience will be Chinese visitors so correct size and display of simplified chinese characters is of the utmost importance. Banner design is also required.
If you feel up for the task, place a bid, references are appreciated.
