We are a translation agency that works in over 40 languages with over 400 translators in our database. we require a custom built application that allows us to manage the process of a translation contract from first contact with client through to allocating translators/proofreaders, sending and receiving source files and providing final product to client. we have only seen one app available that comes close, but this is too complicated for our needs (see attachment). the application we are looking for is to be web based, can be php or asp, must be secure, and have an attractive GUI. no clunky looking DOS like apps please! I have attached below a basic outline of what we require and the steps our process follows. Added 19/07/05: from an end user point of view, it is extremely important that the app has full functionality on win 2000 & XP, Mac OSX, IE5+, Firefox and Safari browsers.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
