Ask us anything about the Council of European Union website

The Council of European Union has a new website built on Umbraco. Given the nature of the context and the requirements of government EU institutions, we had to face a lot of "interesting" problems, ranging from being in 24 languages to having more than 30 editors working concurrently, to being served and cached via a reverse-proxy. The editor experience has been crafted to allow editors to have maximum freedom, while still retaining the corporate identity and structure of documents. This also required a lot of customization.
We'll make a poll one week before to collect feedback and we'll discuss the most requested topic.
