We're an Upper Hutt web design company and we take your website seriously. It's not just about designing an attractive site: the finished site must present the information your customers are looking for, it must represent your business and it must easy to navigate and it must be as easy to maintain as possible.

We can produce sites in a range of CMS platforms such as Silverstripe, Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla. Our frequent use of database technology, together with many years of IT analysis and development experience allows our sites to be much more than just another bit of static text. Shopping carts, mailing lists, personalised customer experiences are all in a day's work.

www.pgconsulting.co.nz

Philippa Grimes is a physiotherapist who has specialised in occupational health and ergonomics. After many years of clinical physiotherapy treatment I developed specialised knowledge in the assessment and management of workplace musculoskeletal conditions and injuries and, in recent years, have extended this into ergonomics.

We ported her existing site into Silverstripe, mainly on the strength of our constant availability to help or make changes to the site.

Translation: SARTIE Handbags Press Release

SARTIE is a designer handbag label from Milan, Italy: their slogan is "intimate luxury" and their Italian language press release, announcing a new season's line inspired by the avantgarde artist Yves Klein's use of the colour blue, was lush and rich in allusion. And, in a way that's typical of SARTIE's exquisite sense of design, it managed to blend in a clear description of the new handbag line. Our English translation preserved the vivid imagery of the original while adopting a "sparser" tone, more familiar to English readers.

Our Customer Says...

Rio Bravo provided the Italian to English translation of our international press release for our new designer handbag line. The translation flows smoothly and looking at the level of language used shows the indepth cultural understanding of the translator to deliver our message and to help us achieve our goal. We thank and fully support Rio Bravo in their business and will continue to work with them.
