check for cache, make ur assets as lightweight as possible, do not use inline CSS or javascript in ur code, use minimum markup maximum content. If all this dosent work u need to change ur server.

Hi there,

Here are the answers to your questions:

1. How do you optimize a website's assets?

Ans: In order to optimize your website's assets you need to understand the basic optimization rules. the basics include that you should decrease download sizes and make fewer http requests. For optimizing the website's assets you should use the following techniques:

  • Name the assets
  • Use a content delivery network
  • Host assets on different domains but reduce dns lookups
  • Place assets on a cookie-free domain and split the assets among domains
  • Use CSS Sprites
  • Disable etags

The above methods will be useful in reducing the page load time as well. Along with this, you should resize elements before they are uploaded into the HTML to reduce the page load time. I would also like to add that in order to get a job as a web designer in any reputed website design company it is very important that you understand these aspects of designing properly. Optimization of a website is an important part of web development.

along with the above:
Avoid landing page redirects
Enable compression
Improve server response time
Leverage browser caching (set far future expires headers for all cache-able resources)
Optimize images (check this https://tinypng.com/)
Optimize CSS Delivery 
Prioritize visible content 
Remove render-blocking JavaScript
Use asynchronous scripts

you can also use server side optimisers like this: https://developers.g...agespeed/module

regarding designing multilingual sites the big thing is the length of blocks of text (This is also true of any content managed websites).  You need to allow room for the variation in text length which occurs in translation.  


you also need to make sure that design elements are language independent.  text in images won't work and clever wordplay in images won't work. When choosing colours you may also consider cultural differences. 


regarding developing multilingual web sites, there's so many considerations on a technical level that I wouldn't know where to begin but  probably what they want to hear is character encoding(should use UTF-8) and SEO considerations such as url format and meta data.
