After screaming that the text couldn't be changed because it had been approved throughout the organization, the client finally relented. They are rewriting and have cancelled the studio session for the moment. I told them I would review their rewrite before agreeing.

A small victory for common sense, but it won't change the poor state of Finnish SME export communications.

Good for you.

Knowing your audience and tailoring your comments accordingly would seem obvious, but apparently not. Maybe your nice committee of engineers, lawyers and timeservers has been hanging out at the Ravintola Katsomo too much, and the jarring decor has caused them to take leave of their senses?

It's always been the same - they only think about what they want to say, never about how it will be received.

Don't blame all engineers; I've been telling managers for years whenever their methodological re-organisations won't work cos "people don't work like that" for years and they never listen. their pet schemes just fall into rat-shit within months and I'd find myself consigned to a dark corner where my cries of "I told you so" could not escape.
