We carry your voice abroad

English copywriting, corporate communications, and digital marketing for Europe's finest institutions

Communication truth #3

"Pretty good" is never
good enough

Does your current writer consistently produce world-class English text, or is he or she just “pretty good”? English is the global language of business, and those active on the world stage should be masters of it.

Brand communications require the precision and impact that only skilled native professionals can provide.  

Longship’s native English speakers are career professionals with decades of experience designing and executing writing projects in Europe, the United States, and Asia. We speak several languages but only write in one: English. Because we have mastered it.

Based in Sweden, we carry your voice abroad.

Brilliant writing takes you only so far

Longship delivers fresh, clear, and—most importantly—compelling messages. We don’t create art for art’s sake. We do write highly effective text that motivates targeted readers to take specific actions. 

Truly mastering the English language and learning how to channel it into winning copywriting, content, and communications takes decades. But even this deep background won’t produce optimal results by itself. It’s necessary, but not sufficient. 

We must first identify and understand our readers: where to find them, how to communicate with them, and what information they need to make that important decision.  

Data and research carry you the rest of the waY

Longship pairs thorough research with deep data analysis to gain critical insights into topics and audiences. Because the more informed, or “smarter,” a communication is, the more effective it is at captivating your readers.

Flawless English and smart communications carry our clients beyond their goals . . . and the competition.

We Navigate by Sunstone™

Longship manages projects according to our proprietary sunstone methodology

Nordic seafarers used a prismatic crystal, the sunstone, to locate the sun even on cloudy days and still be able to navigate. Longship’s Sunstone provides a roadmap for copywriting, content writing, and corporate communications projects of all sizes, and flexibly adapts to any processes the client already follows.

This battle-tested methodology offers much more than just a breakdown of project stages. It supplies the framework on which to structure collaboration with the client, best practices for each stage, checklists to confirm progress, and common pitfalls to avoid. And the benefits?

  • Eliminating surprises with clearly defined responsibilities and deliverables 
  • Minimizing delays by identifying the necessary people and data right from the start
  • Meeting deadlines through reliable project planning
  • Reducing overall project cost and duration with efficient workflows 
Projects can be complex. Sunstone charts the course.
