Most text content of the site is finally translated to English. It is not Janis' first language, but he does not use Google translate and we hope that it will be readable if not very stylish. Descriptions under items are still to be added and translated though.
There is a lot of work going on but stiil in the Latvian version mostly. Please use it for now and come back for pages in English in a few weeks.
The main news about this site is the site itself. This is the second version of jaunarajs.com/jaunarajs.lv, rebuilt from scratch.
For English readers, this news may not be so great because few pages have been translated to English for now. However, there is much more to look at than to read, so we hope that some Latvian will no t bother you too much.
Everything in this site is new—design, code, contents and images. Though far from being ready, we decided to put it up because the old version, being built in 2000, was outdated so much that this version, unfinished as it is, is more complete one already. However, some pages are still empty, others have incomplete English versions and should be considered just stubs or drafts. But Janis is working almost full-time on it now, something new will be up here every day. Please come back soon again to check it out!
