German embassies and consulates around the world are a vital contact point for those Germans staying or living abroad who need advice and tips. These services are mainly used via the internet: the Foreign Office maintains 250 sites in 45 languages with six million requests every month – that means traffic around the clock.Read more
So that the Foreign Office can handle this dizzying number of requests, Aperto develops a powerful, central CMS. Based on CoreMedia this system is available for the 3,500 editors worldwide 24/7. Those responsible for the regional pages can use the content supplied by the central editorial team without the need for costly installations or additional programming skills. Image galleries, videos, external links, and complete topical packages are available to embassies in their local language. Furthermore, country editors do not have to worry about updating content themselves: changes made by the central editorial team are automatically applied to the country pages.
Collaboration with the Foreign Office continues: Aperto is currently developing a mobile version of the website with changes to the CSS.
