Another option would be hosting in a larger, free consortium, such as the Digital Library of the Caribbean (for which I am the developer) which already supports a lot of content on Haiti. We have an agreement with the Law Library Microfilm Consortium to host much of the Haitian legal history through this portal as well.

If they want to get something up quickly, XTF might be a good starting point, especially since the 3.0 release comes with globalization support for having multiple languages in the UI, so that users can choose with language to see in the UI.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] human rights violations elibrary for Haiti/France
I've just been contacted out of the blue by someone working with a joint Haitian/French human rights organization that needs to create a searchable, bilingual elibrary on human rights violations in Haiti. They've secured hosting in America for various reasons and they have a few thousand or more documents to store, index and make available. The lady I talked to had an interest in using facets and storing the documents in a MySQL db. I briefly suggested that Solr and Blacklight might be where they're heading.
I also suggested that she might be able to get more help from an I-school like my alma mater, UNC-SILS.
If anyone would like to assist her or has some ideas or experience with such things, her email is reneeasteria [at] gmail [dot] com.
She didn't tell me much more beyond this. I believe that she doesn't consider herself a programmer (I bet we would consider her a coder :-) ), she's been working with statistical software for a number of years, and that she is able to learn what's necessary.
I'm not sure of any protocols, but I went ahead and CC'd Renee on this message.
