comment What's a better term for database “front-end” vs “back-end” for non-technical users?
Perhaps you could refer to front-end as the input layer and the back end as the data layer? Would the users understand that kind of terminology?

comment How to phrase button labels?
I'd beg to differ, 'img' is used all across the internet as a truncation of 'image'. I mean, look at imgur etc...

So surely we can exchange 'image' for 'img' and 'description' for 'desc'! :^)

Due to a requirements change the Boss doesn't want a "number of roles" option anymore, but this was a good answer, thanks.

comment Collecting Information for Project Management System from non Computer Workers
I think there has been some confusion - I am referring to contracts that the company has taken on for clients - which the employees here are assigned to. I do not mean the employment contracts.

comment Collecting Information for Project Management System from non Computer Workers
Well we have limited information from our timesheets system, but all it covers is the hours of a given week spent on a contract by contract number, it doesn't give us a concise figure on how long was spent, the idea was to let each individual tell us the information, rather than have one unlucky person get the information themselves. We also have no idea what role they played in a given project. We know the role they are in the company, but they might fulfil a different role working day to day. The timesheets don't give us this information.
