Windows and Mac file location generator


On a daily basis with 30 or more emails, I have to insert links to files
for our groups.
My process is as follows:
From the Mac finder copy the pathname into the clipboard.
Paste the path into an excel doc: "filesystem_location_generator"
which then generates the two links to be pasted into Outlook.
In Outlook I command_option_shift paste so that it blesses it as a hyperlink.
At the end of the day I become an ogre and slimy toads come out of my mouth ugrh$%@!

I wish I could do the above in a smarter way ideally from
Clipboard pathname to Outlook hyperlinks bypassing Excel.

Can someone point me to a link or a source?
I am adventurous with scripting and I use Terminal a little.
I prefer scripting as opposed to an app or a standalone plugin.
