    Looks really good. What modules/plugins/extensions did you use?

    Maybe an English flag to convert back to English or aUK flag if you want. I made it polish and had to click the title bar to reload the english version

    One comment I'd make is on the use of ip addresses for the links from your secure menu.

    Check your logo, the second 'Specialist' is misspelt. Looking good though.

    I like it, very clean

    Anti right-click is rather pointless as if you want to nab anything you can either view the source or print-screen, just annoys regular visitors imo (although as you mention that choice is out of your hands)

    I like it. Are you in the process of translating the whole site? I dont read anything other than english so I dont understand what it says, so I assume it's a generic page proving information in each language? I agree an English/UK flag might be useful for those looking to change it back. I initially thought I'd misclicked because it kept going back to English but then I realised that it was only 1 page in the other languages.

    The only other thing I noticed is that you have a font size available but only for certain sections. Any reason why you didn't put it for the whole site?

    Looks good to me though.

    they are all going to be changed over the summer when this site moves to the correct domain, the rest will be moved to a domain too

    Just my opinion but there's too much white space for me - personally.
