OK, I have many years web-dev experience (mostlly front end) and have work with SS a couple times now on small (think glorified blog) sites.
I have a new project that will prove to be a challenge for me.

It requires:
- 2 ecommerce sections (1 for a small [5 products] retail line to be offered to the public, and another for taking wholesale orders of a catalogue of about 120 products)
- Front end for consumers (this shouldn't be a problem other than the above listed shop)
- backend for wholesale partners (PDF downloads, articles and the above listed cart?)
- ALSO the front end shop must also exist in 2 languages (english and french)

OK, so 2 things here I have not worked with before, the Ecommerce mod, and using SS for multiple languages.
Can any one give me a heads up in regards to what sort of issues I might encounter with these 2 features and perhaps some guidance on how to avoid them.
