Communications

I provide a complete range of translation, writing and editing services to help you communicate clearly with your audience.

EDITING & PROOFREADING

I offer editing and proofreading services in English to:

Small and medium businesses, educational and governmental institutions and NGOs

Documents without typos, spelling or grammatical errors create trust in your brand. Let me professionalise your:

 – Website pages

– Newsletters

– Email campaigns

– Brochures and flyers

– Reports

– Articles and social media posts

I work on your text in Word using Track Changes unless you require otherwise.

For quotations please send me an email on contact@tellthemwell.com with the text in question so I can assess the rate depending on how specialised its vocabulary is, its number of words and urgency to be completed. For texts longer than 2,500 words a discount applies. As a sole trader in the UK, I am not required to charge VAT.  

 

WRITING & COPYWRITING

I offer copywriting services to:

Small and medium businesses, educational and governmental institutions and NGOs

I specialize in focused, clear and engaging communication that reflects your organisation’s identity and values. Together, we identify your unique selling points, target audience and what purpose this particular document serves within your communication plan.

I help you adjust your communication to inform or sell your services and products by formulating your offer with the needs and pain points of your clients in mind finding:

– the right tone and level of language complexity 

– the right amount of information

– the right customer service approach

 

Jobseekers

I offer a complete package of strategical advice, proofreading and writing for jobseekers who have been disappointed by the lack of positive responses to their job applications in English. I will:

–  recommend and or/ create a new CV template in Word or Canva if needed

– avoid CV features that automated companies’s CV scanning systems reject

– inform you about what could have made a recruiter skip your application in your previous CV

– proofread and edit your CV and motivation letter with a professional yet authentic tone

– reorganize your content in a more efficient way thinking like a recruiter to increase your chances of making the first round of selection

If you are still uncertain about what kind of roles and organisations you should work for, we can schedule 4 interactive Ikigai sessions. They will help you clarify your purpose by identifying what you are good at, what you love and how it fits in what the world needs. Finally we will brainstorm about what steps you can take to make it happen in the short and long terms.

If your native language is French, Spanish or Dutch I can provide this advice in your mother language. I can translate your CV into English as well. I work through Zoom or Skype and emails with you on this process until you are satisfied. I put an emphasis on explaining and teaching you so that you gradually can adjust your applications yourself.

"I'm so glad Lucie helped me with the English translation of my new website (www.retreatsardinia.com) which was originally in Dutch! Quick, accurate, passionate, caring, personal, friendly, professional, all qualities I regard as essential personally too. So I deeply recommend working with Lucie."

Sam Pitzalis
Retreat Sardinia- Tour operator

"Lucie efficiently revised my CV: she gave it a professional look and made my academic as well as my personal assets stand out. Moreover, she is a wonderful coach in my job application procedures. She connected me to someone from a company that I could imagine myself working for and this person forwarded my CV internally to the right department. Lucie advised me on how to write an effective motivation letter. She still helps me to keep an eye on achieving my (personal) goals. If you are looking for someone who is good at organizing, can listen well and is supportive, I am certain you will find a reliable partner in Lucie."

"I have hired Lucie for editing and writing assignments in English ranging from course transcriptions to website content for the last few years. Her writing style is precise and engaging. Our highly educated audience mostly consists of non-native speakers of English who are learning complex new concepts in global mobility for HR, relocation and Comp & Ben specialists. They value accuracy and clarity. She has translated reports and promotional texts for our organisation from Dutch to English as well. I appreciate how she also provides marketing advice when suitable and raises questions from a client's perspective before we finalise messages to our current and prospective clients at Expatise Academy"

Inge Nitsche, CEO
Expatise Academy

Lucie is a powerhouse! I met Lucie several years ago when I volunteered for The World in Your Classroom in The Hague, which Lucie coordinated. As volunteers Lucie made us feel welcome, understood and so valued for the experiences we shared with Dutch students. Because of Lucie's program management, we got as much out of the experience as the students. Working with Lucie was always a delight - she's brilliant, creative, organized, and perfectly direct. I see why she seems able to accomplish so much in the same # of hours the rest of us get. Plus, her warm spirit and generosity shine through in every interaction.
