Hi guys,

Lately I have had some requests from outside my own country. This means that I strongly consider to build a new website entirely in English.

I have two options:

• To build a completely new website with a new design and new texts.
• To make my current site bilingual, which I will translate Dutch texts into English.

Do you have tips or improvements for my current website in Dutch: http://www.goochelaar-maastricht.nl/. Probably you don't understand anything that is written, but do you like the overall design of the website?

What can or should I do to improve my website?

Hi,
Wordpress template so it's corporate and professional... It's also dull and says nothing about you as a performer but if it gets you work then that's great.
Just my opinion.

Hi Ade, thanks for your opinion! You're right that I'm using a theme (not Wordpress, but similar). Why? In the past I worked in the field of change management and dealt in my work with various web designers. People who earn huge money with the ignorance of most managers. The worst was, they delivered websites without good cms or adaptability of the website. The websites were not responsive etc. So I decided to make my own website based on a theme and a lot of additions. It is by the way full responsive so viewing it on a phone is easy.

Maybe it is not your style, but do you have tips to improve? What do you think is a good website and why?

Hi,
OK, I think yours is a rapidweaver theme... anyway I feel you need to theme the website to you and your style - it's just a generic site and doesn't stand out.
I design customed themed wordpress sites and they certainly don't cost 1000's!
Here's a couple of examples: http://chris-harding.co.uk/ and http://www.bencardall.com/
