BBC Indonesia

The new BBC Indonesia site is claimed to be the first responsive Asian major news site.

Working off the BBC News codebase, we have produced a localised version of the site.

This blog post written by Tom Maslen encompasses many of the features I worked on.

Also got a small mention on the BBC Internet Blog.

BBC Hausa

This is the second site we have released.

The one thing that is different (excluding the obvious translations, sub-indexes, etc) is the link to "Bidiyo" (Video) on the index page, which links back to a restyled old stack page. This is an interim solution while we get our video pages working.

Technologies used:
