Voiceover Translation

Your choice of voice!

Multilingual voiceover is an audiovisual production technique whereby the offscreen narrator’s voice will be replaced with a voiceover translation into a chosen target language.

What does multilingual voiceover entail?

Carrying out a successful and professional multilingual voiceover is no mean feat. It involves:

Transcribing the original audio – it is essential to have a full and accurate transcription of the original audio to work with so that it can be accurately translated.

Translating the content of your video

It is very important that you entrust your translation to a professional agency like Lingua Translations. The linguists we provide will bear in mind that the translation is destined for voiceover production purposes. This means that they will accurately translate the content of your video, but not too literally and as concisely as possible so that the voiceover will fit within the allotted timeframe.

Sourcing a voice talent

There are multiple decisions to be made when choosing your multilingual voice artist – do they need to be male or female? Should they be a native or have a particular accent? Do they need to come from a particular region? Do they need to ‘sound’ a certain age?

We can give you a selection to choose from if you wish.

Recording your multilingual voiceover

This can be a difficult process because some languages are wordier than others, which has implications for the speed of your voiceover. It takes seasoned professionals to record a voiceover that is smoothly voiced, at the correct speed and that will have the same impact on your target audience as the original video.
