Recommend Wordpress Developers

I'm scoping out a CMS migration to Wordpress from some crazy, proprietary .NET framework we need to abandon. I plan to lead the project, but I'll definitely need some good Wordpress theme developers I can go to for the heavy lifting.Also, at this point we're not really looking to do any design changes, so this is really about the CMS and back end.Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!See More

Website Translation Services

I've been tasked with getting some of our website translated into Spanish and Chinese. We had some pages translated into Spanish several years ago, but since multi-lingual was not part of our workflow, the content on those pages quickly became out-of-date and were just recently removed from the site.Do any of you have pages translated to other languages? Do you use a 3rd-party service to do it, or someone on campus with those skills? Or an automated service like Google translate?For those of…See More

Dynamically adding text to a PDF

We're looking for a service or tool that will let employees create their own business card and have a press-ready PDF sent to our print shop. Ideally the employee would type in their info into a form, and that text would be dropped into a predefined PDF template. I know this falls under the "web to print" industry, but I haven't found any workable services yet. Thanks!See More
