How do we address our customers?

Our Tone Of Voice is based on our brand personality, but two personality traits are more important in our “think possible” positioning. We certainly want to be enthusiastic and human. We also want to be trustworthy and innovative, but the latter play a supporting role.

For Tone of Voice guidelines and examples, visit the full Tone of Voice documentation of the Proximus brand book.

Use sentence-case capitalization for all UI text elements. This style is predominantly lowercase. Capitalize only the initial letter of the first word in the text and other words that require capitalization, such as proper nouns. For example, labels in a form would be written as “First name” and “Email address.”

Sentence-style capitalization makes it easy for readers to distinguish between common nouns and proper nouns, and is generally considered the quickest form to read.

Unless the name is a product or service name, or is trademarked, always use sentence-style capitalization.

In Dutch, do not use the word "Kanaal" anymore, use the word "Zenders" instead.
  • Except when the meaning of the sentence requires the use of the word Kanaal for a good understanding.
  • Some sentences may need to be rewritten.
    Example: "Standaard vind je deze zender op kanaal 13" becomes : "VTM vind je op zender 13.
TV Bonus

No longer use the words: TV Bonus. Replace "Bonus" with an explanatory sentence.
