Hi together!

I'm not a native English speaker and not accustomed to talk in English at all, as I work in a Swiss company, but now we want to get international... so

my actual question is..

which version is correct:

Exclusive by "company name"

or

Exclusively by "company name"

I have googled it, most of the hits in German were written in the first version, the English one's in the second version

and know I'm a little bit confused - pls. help me! Emotion: crying

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

my actual question is..

which version is correct:

Exclusive by "company name"

or

Exclusively by "company name"

It's easier if you supply an actual context, but I would say 'exclusively'.

Best wishes, Clive
Hi Clive,

thanks for your reply, but what do you mean with:

"It's easier if you supply an actual context" I don't quite understand it, sorry.

The sentence is going to be sprayed (oh dear hope me grammar is nearly correct.. I forgot mostly everything since I was a student) on a big package of sawn timber (one of our products)

First a picture of the brand followed by "exclusive(ly) by, then logo of the company name.

Greets over the big ocean, Tina

Do you say "Greets"? (we use this expression just for fun)

Greets Tina,

I haven't heard 'greets', just 'greetings'.

I thought you wanted to use the phrase as part of a sentence.

I doon't see a lot of difference between painting on your lumber 'Exclusively by ABC' or just 'ABC', or even 'An ABC product'.

What are you trying to add by saying 'exclusively'? That no-one else sells this kind of lumber? That ABC did everything involved in producing it, eg grew the trees, cut the trees, processed the wood in their sawmill, etc?

For some reason, I mentally associate the phrase 'exclusively by . . . ' with high-end women's fashion, eg 'exclusively by Dior'. However, having said that, it certainly wouldn't hurt to put it on a package of lumber, I suppose.

Best wishes, Clive
Salute!

Haha, that's a good association, good that we talk about it...

I have to explain a bit more:

The state should be "you can only buy this product at this company in this country.

There is a different ABC for each country /only one seller for each

Do you understand what I mean? It's quite difficult to explain this the first time in English

Can you talk German or Swedish ? Emotion: big smile

Warm regards, Tina
Hi,

'Exclusively by ABC' sounds OK, in that case.

No, sorry, no German or Swedish, so just practice your English.Emotion: wink

Dear Muninu,

There aren't too many people on the boards that can communicate using German/Swedish.
For the previously mentioned reason, I suggest you improve your English. Emotion: wink
WA tries to sound like Clive. ;-)

Hello Western American,

@ There aren't too many people on the boards that can communicate using German/Swedish.
sorry, it was only meant as a joke, of course I want to practise my English and I was very pleased when I found this forum Emotion: smile

Does anyone knows another expression with the same meaning as exclusively by ABC??



It seems to be so be complicated for Swiss persons to say this word, whereas "exclusive by ABC" would go easier, but as is grammatically wrong...

Does a common abbreviation exit for "exclusively"?

Greetings M.
Hi,

How about 'Only by ABC'?
