    which one is correct or are any of them actually incorrect?

    "tailored, to put you at the centre"

    "tailored to put you at the centre"

    I wanted to add the comma to create emphasis but not sure if it's grammatically correct?

    thanks to anyone that can help.

    It's 'fanpages'

    If I were trying to emphasise your sentence, id've just put the "you" in uppercase.

    "tailored to put YOU at the centre"

    I know that

    Without the comma

    Semi-colon...

    "Tailored; to put you at the centre."

    ...but, even then, it is a nonsense statement.

    Personally, I would say that "tailored to put you at the centre" doesn't actually make any sense. How do you tailor something to put someone at the centre?

    example

    A training course can be tailored to make someone more proficient thereby putting them in the "centre" of the job market for their profession.

    Only in the centre!, not at the bottom or preferably the TOP!

    If you was at the top why would you need further training?

    Ok you have a valid point there, but is it at the centre or the bottom!

    Just stick her in a care home.....ah sorry I only read the title.

    Both sides of a semi-colon need to be usable as independent sentences.

    As for the original question I would argue that both uses are valid grammar. Commas can be used to separate an introductory phrase from the rest of the sentence with a pause. It is a bit clunky though.

    Right, so the course was tailored to make someone more proficient; it wasn't tailored to put someone at the centre...

    OMG
    Imagime you had 25 models and you needed to take a decent photograph to a magazine article and to make the shot more pleasing to the eye all the models were asked to stand in size order then each next tallest model would take a position on opposite sides to the tallest

    Therefore the shot was tailored to suit the tallest model at the centre in the photographic composition

    Yes, I think we are all in agreement that the sentence is not complete, &/or the context is required to provide a worthwhile suggestion.

    So now it's "tailored to suit ..." How about somehow crowbarring together an English sentence using the phrase "tailored to put you at the centre" which also isn't nonsensical?
