Gate2Home.com Virtual online keyboard

What do you do?

The site already exists with old design, here: gate2home.com.
This site enables you to write in your language wherever you are in the world, with an online onscreen keyboard emulator.
The main purpose of this site is to let everyone who gets stuck without the ability to write/type/search the internet in their own language be able to do just that (usually travelers/tourists or anyone in front of a foreign computer).
After users type in the virtual keyboard they can search Google, wikipedia, translate theirtext, send e-mails, post to facebook and twitter etc.

Do you have a desired website screen size?

I'd prefer the site to be according to blueprintcss guidelines, but still you can go wild if you have a good idea that breaks these guidelines.
(950px wide, in 24 columns, check the links for more info, specially the second one).

Target Audience

What is your industry?

Travelers, Immigrants, Academic

Describe the target audience for your website design

People that are currently not in their home country, nation or culture, they are far away from home and want to communicate in their language, hence the name Gate2Home. They are probably mid 20es adventures travelers in the outskirts of south America or India, people in a mission far away, immigrants in a big western metropolitan, or students for foreign languages or students in exchange plans... in internet cafes , airports... guest houses/hostels...

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your website design

1. Its not only virtual keyboard, its an entry point to the web in your language (posting to facebook and twitter, searching google, wikipedia, translating etc..)
2. old world meets facebook/twitter generation
3. Feel like at home

How is your company different from your competitors?

Mixture of services all at once, easy to use keyboard that feels like a real one.

What adjectives should best describe your website design?

cosy, relax

What content must be included in the website design?

*) starting page. (check gate2home.com). I think of something like Wikipedia opening page but with Gate2Home airplane logo, with all the languages around a globe. so it will be feel like a center for all languages, like Wikipedia.
*) app page (i.e. http://gate2home.com/?language=ar). feel free to play with the locations, to change the ui and the way people select languages or navigate to sections of the site. also keep places for ads
*) important! the keyboard can be also redesigned. check the attached keyboard image springs. There you have design of clicked and unlicked buttons - so feel free to design the keyboard in the site.

Do you have additional requirements or links you want to share?

Elegance and style. You're the architects, design a home.
