before buying the Essence theme I have some questions:

. Is it possibly to change the English text constants into German?

. Is it worth to have the Essence theme when I don't use the blog
feature? How could I deactivate the blog feature? Or would you then
suggest another theme or even not use Wordpress?

. How is the Free WordPress Mobile Plugin integrated into the theme?
The best way would be to have a site with "responsive design", which
means that you have only ONE URL for ALL devices. But I think I've
read it somewhere that I have to have a link on the "PC site" which
goes to the mobile site, is this right?

. Could I use the theme WITHOUT the featured sections? Or could I use
only ONE  or TWO featured section?

It would be nice if you could answer my questions.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Best regards

- Essence theme is not localisation ready, which means that to translate, you would have to edit all the theme files and translate all text strings.

- You do not have to create a blog page. As for the rest of this question, it is hard to answer. I use WordPress for all sorts of sites, just because it takes care of so many thing for you.

- Mobile plugin is not integrated into the theme. The plugin will detect the device used to view the site, and it will switch to the mobile theme you selected. No link required. More here: http://pluginbuddy.com/intro-to-pluginbuddy-mobile-feb-6th-2011-webinar/ and here: http://pluginbuddy.com/purchase/mobile/

- these are fairly easy modifications, instructions for those can and will be provided once you have access to the Essence support forum.

I hope these answer your questions, let us know if you have more queries,
