Dura Undercushion is in manufacturing, based in Montreal, Canada and has been in business for over 60 years.
Their previous website was using older technology and recent content could not be translated anymore, affecting the client’s brand image. We were tasked with designing, building and managing their new website, which had to be perfectly bilingual (English & French), to support their efforts in developing the US market.
The new site now uses Beaver Builder, WooCommerce, and WPML, to provide a seamless experience moving from French to English. In addition, each product’s page was completely customized to provide easy access to documentation and keep extensive download and visitor stats, helping Dura Undercushion assess the demand for their products.
The client is now able to update their content themselves using WPML’s interface, preventing any content from being out-of-date.http://www.duracushion.com
