I've been asked to produce a site that's basically a series of photos accessible either by clicking on an aerial map photo or by entering English or Arabic text in a search box and then be taken to possible result options and/or the photos with small text info.
I'm being given a spreadsheet of photo names and their English and Arabic equivalent translations. Site needs to be simple and device responsive. There will be up to about 1,000 photos/entries listed in the spreadsheet. There is an idea that users may be able to upload their own images to add to the collection and/or add comments in either language to build info on the photos.
Site does not want to be two language versions of same site, both languages on same page, same search destination, same comments section and/or ability to add more photos/info.
Does anyone have any ideas on how best and simply to achieve this? Sight does not need to be any more complex than as specified. Adding of photos by users is optional.
Any suggestions for theme, slideshow handling, text handling, search in dual language, importing spreadsheet into database and linking to photos? Would Upfront work with English and Arabic on same page (L2R R2L) or any other theme?
Many thanks for anyone's thoughts.
