As a manufacturer we need a multilingual website to present our products and keep contact with our dealers worldwide by providing them access to sales materials and updates. The structure and characteristics we supposed for our website follows:
1) Design: should be compatible with tablets, 95% browsers and be sizable so can be visited well-formatted on both 16:9 and 4:3 screens
2) Products: for products we have description texts, photo and video gallery, technical sheets, available optional accessories (from Accessories section) and finally user testimonials and comments. (comments should be reviewed before publishing)
3) Accessories: the difference between accessories and products is that they don't have technical sheets and testimonials. Compatible products should be shown for every accessory. In the other word, for each product the available accessories should be specified and vice versa.
4) Product comparison: products are divided into 4 or 5 categories and products in each category share almost the same specifications. Therefore the user needs to compare 2,3 or 4 products together in a tabular format.

6) Product finder: every product have 3 or 4 distinguishing parameter which can be used in a step-by-step process in a way that the users thinks the website is helping him/her to find the right and suited product to his/her application.
7) News: a section to publish news of the company. The last 4 or 5 news are visible in the first page with their title and a cover photo.
8) Languages: supports both left-to-right and right-to-left languages. the number of languages should be float so we can add as many as languages we required. Avoid using Google translate.
9) Online contact form and the relevant admin page to review and response them.
10) Typical pages like about us, terms and conditions, partners&useful links, FAQs, ...
11) Dealer finder: using which the client can find the nearest dealer to him among about 200-250 dealers worldwide.
