The project development hystory.
It was necessary to modify the accounting system to ensure that for each item to store information in all required languages. We improoved the exchange plugin to make special setting of general currency and language for each site. In this case, the exchange must transmit more and more information on the goods. In particular, the unit weight of the product and its name in its own language. Also the names of the characteristics of all goods for each language. These characteristics will be used for filtering system.
We pay great attention the structure and layout of elements of the all pages, and especcually of the home page. That is why we have prepared mockups of main pages. Agreed with the customer various subtleties and details for each page type.
For example, visitor wants to find the product he needs very quickly. So the search block we placed on the top and it must be high visible.
One of the client's requirements - is to show catalog on the main page. So we decide to display catalog parts with pictures. It makes visitor more undestandable what about this part.
It was decided to implement a floating order cart. This option is convenient for the buyer, since shopping is always in sight at the same place.
For normal display of this site decided to work without special mobile mobile version. But apply the technology RWD (Responsive Web Design). So it looks good now on tablet-pc, mobile phones and of course desktop. Independant of screen resolution.
