Joanne Archambault, PhD, asked me to update her website (in French) Traduction Ortho that was running on a very outdated PHP version. It turned out that the database had been compromised and the site needed to be set up from scratch.

      Ted Performance Mindset Coaching

      Ted Performance LLC offers mental performance training and mindset coaching for individuals and teams. As you can see from the before pictures, although Ted’s website featured a great color scheme, the design was somewhat cluttered. The site had apparently also been hacked. I wiped the site clean, starting with a fresh WordPress database, but saving his graphics and text. I then redesigned the entire layout for easier navigation both on desktop and mobile devices. Finally, I installed security and backup plugins to avoid future cybersecurity incidents.

        Northern California Translators Association

        I have been on the Board of Directors of the Northern California Translators Association (NCTA) as webmaster since 2017. In this capacity, I am not only responsible for maintaining the website and the accompanying online journal, Translorial, but also the entire membership database and all membership profiles, which are also housed within WordPress.

        In 2022, I gave the site a much-needed facelift and am currently working on improving the membership database itself. For the new design, I used the existing NCTA color scheme which was developed by an earlier Board of Directors in the mid-2000s.

        • Client: Northern California Translators Association (as webmaster volunteer on Board of Directors)
        • Features: Membership database and profiles, search functionality for profiles, members-only pages behind login, membership administration, events calendar, event RSVP and event tickets

The site is available in two languages, with a language switcher facilitated by the plug-in Polylang. The site features a web shop based on WooCommerce, where people can order fixed-price translations of official documents instantly and pay via any credit or debit card facilitated by Stripe. Finally, it features a bilingual blog.

            I contacted Carola because I needed a new website to support a new angle in my freelance business. I was so happy with her services that I asked her to redo my original website also. She was patient with me and quickly answered all my simplistic questions (like, “how do I log in to my site to make edits?”), while doing all the behind the scenes stuff necessary for my websites to have a modern look and feel.

            Joanne Archambault, PhD

            Thank you thank you thank you! Definitely want to tweak verbiage and probably some of the photos eventually. But I really like the look and feel much better than before. I love how you added your creative genius to it. Thanks Carola!
