Translation Commons is a nonprofit aiming to be an online one-stop community for all information relating to translation and localization. How do you organize content for an entire industry? How do you create a website structure that allows users to find the information they need, even when it’s a needle in a haystack?
Content planning or Information Architecture determines how information is displayed or accessed. For Translation Commons, planning took much longer than development and it was worth every second of it.
The audience will learn of various techniques and methodologies which will help them organize large sets of information.
