What Helene Tammik is working on
Nov 11, 2019 (posted via  Email received from a project manager today: "CONGRATULATIONS, Helene, the client liked your test the best! They said 'We all unanimously loved this latest round of work, particularly the writing of copywriter A. It’s exactly what we are looking for.’ (You are copywriter A ☺)". So now I’m tasked with creating a unique voice for the brand new watch and jewellery website of an Irish retail company that specialises in both luxury and mid-market. More topically, I recently transcreated the speech given by the French Rugby Association president at the World Cup handover ceremony between Japan 2019 and France 2023. Also translated some in-depth feature articles about sniffer dogs and recherché Chinese teas for a specialist magazine dedicated to scent and the sense of smell, much read by fragrance and perfumery industry professionals. ...more, + 10 other entries »

Ask me what
I do for a living, and I’m only half joking when I reply:
I sell dreams.

As a translator and transcreator, I render the marketing texts of
prestigious French and Swiss brands into an English that kindles desire and interest
in their luxury, cultural, lifestyle, and travel products.

As a
copywriter, I inject a storytelling exuberance into brand content, corporate
communications, content marketing, ad campaigns, slogans, and the like. ‘What’s
the angle?’ is always my first question, so I can deliver work that’s fresh, impactful,
and ready for publication.

state-of-the-art Musée des Confluences in Lyon – ‘telling the story of
humankind’ – entrusts its major exhibition translations to me, and I’ve been selected
as official translator for the French regional tourism and economic development
agency, Vaucluse Provence Attractivité.

A number of translation agencies
call me first when they need a winning test piece for new business pitches (by the by, I won the
Translate in Chantilly competition in 2015, judged by Chris Durban, Grant Hamilton, Ros Schwartz,
François Lavallée & Dominique Jonkers).

offer proofreading
and revision,
as well as tutoring
translators who want to up their game and
move into the premium market.
