I guess it's time for me to react on the helpful posts you made. The decision to use or use not a cms has been postponed. I work on the website as a volunteer and due to a few events I'm not sure whether I will continue to do my work on that particular site.
The very nature of the organisation, there is only one person on the payroll who knows hardly anything about the most trivial use of a computer, combined with the wish to make it a website in three different languages lead to the question whether or not to change to a cms and if so, what cms?
It's easier to find a volunteer to maintain a website by using a cms than it is to find someone to do it by using html and css. Apart from that it was recommended to me that if the step was made to a trilingual website it would be better to change to a cms at that point.
I must say I loved to read the disadvantages, because I'm quite content the way things are working now, so as far as my personal interest is concerned, I'd leave things the way they are. Nevertheless, I feel a responsibility towards the organisation I work for. In the end I want to do what's best for them. Even if the question is not actual at this moment, I keep being interested in your input. If the outcome is I quit my volunteersjob, I will end up at an other company making websites and might be confronted with the same problem. Apart from that it is of course useful for other visitors of this topic to read the comments you posted.
