LinguaMedia is a Russian e-commerce website. It sells books for children to learn how to read and write in Russian. Their target group are Russian parents who live abroad but want their children to be able to master the use of azbuka (the Russian alphabet).
I’ve used the Avada theme and WooCommerce to create the website, which was recently re-designed by the client herself. The main challenge was to get the translations right, because my ability to read azbuka is based solely on 2 years of mandatory Russian classes, in school, back in the 80s of the last century. I haven’t really needed to use it again until this job came in.
