We have experience in producing multilingual websites, and can arrange to have your website text translated.
Orion's classical music websites Cadenza and Music & Vision won first and second places, respectively, in Chamber Music America's February 2000 survey of the world's fifty best classical music websites. When the same magazine revisited the online classical music scene in 2003, both Orion sites were still featured. Music & Vision magazine celebrated ten years of free-to-read daily publication in January 2009, and in 2010 it became a subscription publication.
Orion's managing director, Keith Bramich, read engineering at Cambridge University, followed by ten years with the Thorn EMI Research Labs at Hayes in Middlesex, during which time he specialised in computer programming, computer graphics, database and media work. His internet programming experience includes extensive use of Perl and PHP in websites, and the construction of databases using ASP, SQL and ODBC.
