Help with a WordPress website conversion

I need a little advice about a WordPress site. I'm helping to redesign an existing website, the owner of the site is requesting a WordPress conversion. Everything's been set up, but it might not be in the right place.

WordPress has been installed on the hosting server, in the root folder of the existing site. The WordPress pages are a work in process, and are "hidden" in the existing site. ie: www.companysite.com/wordpress18578497." It's search engine blocked, so the only way it can be seen by anyone is if they know that url. That may not have been the best way to do things, I know.
But, it's there & we've added a bunch of content.
My question is this: When we are ready to go live with the WordPress site we are working on that is currently hidden, what is the best way to go about making that happen?
I'm not a developer, so please explain it to me like I'm dumb. Any advice is much appreciated!
