An international company with schools in over 300 spots worldwide needs to make a substantial splash in the cyber world too. And it was for that reason that inlingua’s local branch trusted ICON with the long-awaited revamp and re-launch of their web portal.
With users all over the world, ICON faced the challenge of creating an easy-to-use, technology savvy and information rich site that would prove successful wherever it was accessed. In fact, the site easily ties in with the company’s motto: ‘Leaning English is fun and easy’, as it was designed around bright colours and an outwardly simple interface that has already been a hit with the school’s students, whatever their level of English.
As one of Malta’s leading web development companies, ICON is used to facing challenges and is keen to work to any specifications in order to develop a site which fits its users like a glove. Using their own, patented ICON.snap™ technology, the company has created a portal that can be updated constantly, ensuring it is ever-evolving throughout the seasons and semesters of the school calendar. The site also includes varied sections on accommodation, things to do while in Malta and what to expect while here.
ICON company director Gege Gatt said: “We set out to create a site that can be appreciated worldwide, which speaks volumes through its simplicity and which appeals to people whatever their current level of understanding in English. Should students prefer, they can also choose to view the information in their own language too as special care went into its multi-lingual translations.”
“The school would like to take their international marketing to the next level, and this site will help them to get there. Keeping cultural differences in mind we developed a web portal that is easy to surf and to understand. The site also sports full integration with many Web 2.0 tools such as FLICKR, Facebook, Skype, Blogspot and Twitter.”
The site is now LIVE and visitors are welcome to take a look at: www.inliguamalta.com.
