Hook 42 has worked with Autodesk over many years for both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 consulting and development. For Drupal 7, we audited the multilingual Drupal configuration and custom code for the Autodesk Knowledge Network and made recommendations for improvements. We were the "multilingual hotline" for Autodesk's developers to answer questions about configuring and customizing their multilingual features. We provided multilingual training at BADCamp which was attended by the Autodesk development team to jumpstart their project. We wrote a custom module to work around issues with the Entity Translation module to support Autodesk's multilingual content workflow.
For Drupal 8, we have been providing architectural guidance and development for a new site including hosting considerations, development workflow, site building best practices, module development, and front end theming. This Drupal 8 site was launched in October 2017. We continue to provide development services for both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 websites.
