Quickly search, filter and find with smart search functionality
With such a vast amount of content, it’s key to use a database that is optimised for searching. Using Elasticsearch we have been able to set up a fast search engine that doesn’t just produce relevant content, it also makes suggestions based on search queries. Refinement of the datasets such as deduplication or improved references between different types of information, further improved search results.
Modest but modern: a clear source of valuable information.
To serve as a podium for the much-valued content, we created a design that uncomplicated and restrained from any excessive visual distractions. With some new fonts and colours we then swiftly updated the look and feel to give the websites a fresh, toned-down and modern look.
Globally accessible and lightning quick
This minimalist design also supported the demand of the websites having to be lightweight. Looking at the statistics we realised that users are from all four corners of the world. With a Google PageSpeed Insights score of 100 on desktop and 91 on mobile, we have been able to provide a fast and positive user experience, even in places where internet speed and technology are lacking. Additionally, the websites have been made accessible in many languages. If available we offer manual translations and if not, an automated tool provides translation in over 100 languages.
