Case study: What 5 languages should I use to translate my website?

I have recently been asked by a client about what 5 languages should he use to go international with his website. Well, beside translating in the obvious English language, I did not know which one should he go next.

I think 10 is the magic number on this, so I will enumerate just the first 10 of them. If you are interested in more than 10 languages, then the order is not quite important Continue reading “Case study: What 5 languages should I use to translate my website?”

WordPress rename/change Post name to a different post type

I will try to process the images that have the logo in the center. In this group, I have a little bit over 40.000 images. Continue reading “Complete case study: watermark detection, remove and place a new watermark- Part II”

Complete case study: watermark detection, remove and place a new watermark – Part I

Replacing a watermark over one image can be an easy task. Replacing it on a 50.000 set of images can be a tricky job to do.

This case is really simple. The company changes their logo. They have all the images on their website watermarked with their old logo and they wanted to re-watermark all the images. They did not store the original photos on upload but stored just the new watermarked ones.

So here is where I came in and try to sort things out. Continue reading “Complete case study: watermark detection, remove and place a new watermark – Part I”
