Helping you tell your story and build your brand

We guide your unique brand story,  helping you shape the language you use, reflecting your unique culture so that your premium products have maximum appeal in your international markets.  

We tell your story with language integration to ensure that communication between your brand and your  customers is  engaging and consistent, from your press releases through to your website and  packaging copy!

Language matters

We ensure you talk about your brand with consistency in all your communications, whether B2B or B2C, written or spoken, on or offline. In this way, your corporate identity and values are always on brand, faithfully reflected across your diverse international and regional markets. With our help, your brand language will be cohesive, appropriate and powerful, meeting your linguistic needs. Our strong team has wide-ranging experience, from developing video voiceovers to crafting brand stories and writing engaging newsletters:

  • storytelling that works for your brand
  • brand language guidelines
  • website copy
  • press releases
  • webshop/Amazon content

We are a member of the Department for International Trade’s UK Investment Support Directory

Even if you are visually recognisable, how do you and your partners talk about your brand? How do your marketing teams, PR teams and even retailers describe your products/services? We can help you develop and implement a strong verbal identity to set you apart from your competitors with every word you say or write! Email us now for a free consultation.

Expanding into a market using a different language  may mean you consider working with a translator. However, translators are not experts in evaluating what will work best in a particular market. Localisation and transcreation agents certainly take the local culture into consideration, but we offer language integration: integrating your corporate/brand values and identity into every message. Working with us ensures that all your communications, across all platforms, reflect your brand identity. Email us now for a free consultation.

Whether most of your language work is done in-house or through an agency, we can help you ensure that you are putting your resources to good use by providing you with unbiased evaluation  of your translated texts. We work with native speakers in your target area to get feedback on your messages so we can evaluate how they are received by your local target group. If there are any weaknesses you will know about them before they become a problem. Make sure your company image is what you really want it to be. Email us now for a free consultation

Not sure how we can help? We offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation during which we will take the time to understand what is important to your company and your brand before we look at how your communications are currently reflecting your image. Email us now!

Our premium language service, ensuring that your brand is built on solid foundations!

Integration

Language integration is at the top of the pyramid for a reason!

Consistency across all your platforms and messages, incorporating your brand culture and values as well as local differences, building on  elements of transcreation, localisation and translation.

Transcreation

Project re-created to reflect local culture and norms.

language integration pyramid

Localisation

Language reflects and conforms to local culture and norms.

Human translation

Quality dependent on experience (not necessarily on qualifications); great for literature and general business letters

Machine translation

Cheap, can even be on your phone; great for an idea of what’s on a menu or what a historic monument is.
