Hero Curve Element

Professional male and female voiceover artists

We have an amazing team of male and female voiceover talents at your disposal.

So that we can provide demo recordings for you to listen to, well need to know a little more about your project.

What is the difference between voiceover and dubbing?

We often find that the terms are used interchangeably, but they are actually completely different services. A voice over will provide the narrative voice of a film, video or audio file. The voice will likely not inject emotion into the content and is more commonly used in material such as documentaries or explainer videos. If your material needs to be dubbed, then it is likely that you are looking for a certain level of intonation, dialect and emotion. It usually means that the voiceover artist will be replacing a different language voice but will be mimicking the style and delivery of the original. Precise synchronisation will be important.

Where will your material be aired?

Some of our voice over artists charge usage fees depending on where the material will used. We try and be as flexible as we possibly can on this. Let us know where our voices will be used so that we can advise whether any fees will apply.

  • Online
  • Events/fairs
  • TV
  • Radio
  • Cinema
  • Internal/Intranet
  • Audio book/streamed
  • Somewhere else?

What sort of voice do you need?

The most obvious starting point is to establish whether you need a male or female voice. Perhaps you need both? Perhaps there are multiple characters Should the voice sound middle-aged, young, serious, timid, confident, playful, deep, husky or clear? If required, we are also able to provide childrens voices. Please let us know what you need and we will either choose for you, or, if you prefer, we can send you demos so that you or your client can choose.

Do you have a prepared script?

Do you have a script in the source language of your material? Or a prepared script in the language you require the voiceover? Please dont worry if you do not have this. Our team of professional audiovisual translators will be able to prepare time coded scripts in the languages you need for the voiceover talents. The audiovisual translators will pay special attention to reflect the style and tone of the original and to keep the script to a similar length and rhythm of the existing speech in the recording.

Voiceover studio editing

We work with partner studios around the world, but we also have our own in-house state-of-art studio with a soundproof recording booth.

Depending on your requirements, high-quality voiceovers can simply be provided as a WAV or MP3 file.

Alternatively, you may require the voice to be synced, edited and mixed to the precise timings of the source video. Provided you give us any other audio tracks as separate files, the voice over can be incorporated into the video so that you are ready to go! Just let us know what you need and well do the rest.
