Marketing - Business/Commerce (general)
Swedish term or phrase: skarpt läge
This is a text on how a company will use its sponsorship of a boat race to engage customers by creating a relationship between them and the race. So here it goes: "Det betyder att vi börjar bygga relationen mellan kunderna och tävlingen i ett SKARPT LÄGE" (upper case added).

What might be a good translation of skarpt läge in this context? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

on a keen level
Explanation:
This is one way bringing out the image of 'keen competition" and a "level keel" for some "marketing-sounding speak" conjuring up a familiar image with some familiar lingo.

without the "i ett" - just "a keen level". Editable with a gloss.

a "keen level of competition" comes to mind too.

Btw, maybe we're doppelgangers - in the good sense ; )

- still in the Aztec neighborhood after travels across the oceans, fond memories of a beautiful spot that has aged well and gotten better - and bigger with time...

Asker: Thanks, Edward, that sounds like a good suggestion (by the way, I attended SDSU, too).
