improve your communication skills in french or german
Do you speak « international »?
You are in contact with partners or clients who do not speak the same language as you. I take care of all stages of this relationship: for training purposes, translations or to adapt your communication tools to an international market.
Do you have a meeting to prepare, an exam to pass, a presentation to make, a dispute to settle? Together we prepare by emphasizing the practical aspect, so that you are operational as quickly as possible.
A native German speaker and a translator by training, I have worked for more than 20 years as a PR and language specialist in international motorsports, particularly Formula One. I exclusively work in German, English and French.
Let’s talk about your projects.
Communication that fits your company’s goals
You would like to speak to foreign partners or clients but all your communication tools are in English. Adapted to the language and culture required, they have a bigger impact and readability. I specialize in German and French speaking markets.
Improve your foreign language skills
You would like to prepare for a meeting, a presentation, a language test or simply improve your language skills with an emphasis on talking. I organize language coaching sessions tailored to your activity and targets by video conferencing or over the phone.
Translation and Interpreting
Translation of all types of documents (except technical) from or to English, German or French.
If you have a meeting by phone or video conference with somebody speaking French or German only, I can assist you with a simultaneous translation.
Adapting your website
The first step to a good communication with your customers and partners is a website that works. I create French or German content for your website, making sure that the copy corresponds to cultural and linguistical standards in those markets.
Should you not yet have one, I cooperate with Adhoc Web for the creation and technical handling of your website.
Hello, my name is Alexandra Schieren. German by birth and translator by training, I have been evolving for more than 20 years as an expert for media and public relations in international motorsport and in particular Formula 1.
"The whole team would like to thank you for your availability and professionalism. Thanks to your clear copywriting in English, we have been able to communicate with clarity on important topics. You also created presentations of our employees that we were able to present to our foreign partners. Your extensive knowledge of the Anglo-Saxon world as well as your digital skills make it possible for us to serenely continue our communication activities."
Jérôme Perrin - CEO and Co-Founder, Global Exposition Services (France)
"Alexandra has been taking care of my media relations for several years now. Due to extensive PR experience in German-speaking countries, but also on a wider international level, she knows exactly which media pitches fit at any given time. She has the right contacts and helps when it comes to doing the interview itself. In short: media relations from A to Z. Thanks to her I was able to give interviews for national newspapers or business and women's magazines amongst others. Alexandra is very professional, and working with her is always relaxed. I can only recommend her to anyone who would like to be present in the mainstream German-speaking media."
Sonja Kreye - Business Celebrity (Germany)
"I have been working with Alexandra Schieren for several years. She has always been very reactive and rigorous in all translations requested. Working with Alexandra is a time-saver and a guarantee for professionalism."
Astrid Sergeant – Founder, Agence Sergeant Paper (France)
"It was great working with Alexandra on the organization of an inauguration. She knew how to structure, anticipate and, above all, communicate the essence of our project. Her view and expertise were essential to the success of this event. Moreover, she is always smiling and in a good mood. It's a pleasure to work with her. Thank you again for your support."
Aliette Trocheris - Professional Coach, Founder of Coach & Co. (France)
"We have always been very happy with the different services provided by Alexandra Schieren, with whom we have been working for many years. The quality of her work and her ability to adapt to our requirements make her a valuable partner."
Nathalie Barbet Baker - Director MS Formation (France)
"As I have a background in marketing myself and have been able to gain experience in corporate PR for many years, it was clear to me that when I started my business, that I also had to start doing PR quickly. Since I lack the time, I asked Alexandra to do it for me. I couldn't believe it but after less than four weeks of working together, my dream publication published an article about me! Working with Alexandra is great, she is a professional and, above all, fun. I can only recommend her warmly to everyone who wants to quickly increase their coverage in the mainstream media!"
