Oui, Cider Now Speaks French
Congratulations to Martin Media, whose five web ecommerce boutiques recently went live on Cider, our eCommerce platform, all entirely in French:
• Boutique La Classe
• Boutique L’Assmat
• Boutique Journal de l’Animation
• Boutique Journal des Psychologues
• Boutique Bois
As our first non-English Cider implementation, the project involved some unique challenges. These included adjustments for rate-includes-tax, handling accent marks and currency display, plus translating Cider itself. The Cider implementation was closely linked with an upgrade of the core Advantage application.
The Martin Media project team included Julien Krier, Philippe Canus, Jérémie Boisselier and Stéphane Sorin, and involved the entire organization for testing the new release.
On the AdvantageCS side, John Hughes led the way, ably assisted by Philippe van Mastrigt, Wouter Verkerk, and Alan Cherney.
