Indeed! I was thinking about a kind of topnavbar which is always visible
so you can switch easily from one section to another. Maybe even with
something like 'Switch to same section in
advanced/professional/beginners/etc' Same as I would like to see on
every page a ' Swith to same section in the german/dutch/spanish/etc

I don't know. I have very good experiences with web site design when you
have roughly this process:
- Brainstorm (that is were we are now :-)
- Define the possibilities and unpossibilities (budget, system, time)
- Define functionalities
- Create a sitemap
- Create rough clickable prototypes (no design yet)
- Create some designs, choose one and fit it on top of the prototypes
- Choose a Content Management System (if necessary)
- Program everything together
- Translate/create all content and put it in the system
- Test, test, test
- Test again
- Correct all errors
- Launch
- Work with the system
- Evaluate
- Brainstorm
- ...
