Want your localized content to really sizzle? The right voice, spoken in the right language, can make all the difference when trying to convey the power of your products or brand to a foreign audience — or even when reaching out to domestic audiences speaking different languages. Outstanding voice over localization, and localized content in general (eLearning courses, scripts, websites, etc.) can boost your company’s profile across diverse markets by making sure your core message is not just being heard, but also understood.
How Does Voice Over Localization Work?
What exactly is voice over localization — and when, where and why do you want to use it? Well, imagine that your company (or your media vendor) is producing instructional videos, eLearning courses, audiovisual marketing materials, or any other type of product that requires, or benefits from a human voice conveying the importance of your message. Once the script translation has been taken care of, voice over localization comes in with voice actors who are fluent (native speakers) in the language and specific dialect of the regional market you’re going after. These talented voice professionals, working with a professional translation team and experienced sound engineers, insert the translated voice overs in exactly the right place in your multimedia materials — be that for video presentations or software-based content. The translated scripts are recorded (or filmed) in a high-end recording studio, with the entire process watched over by a skilled international multimedia project manager.
The quality of the voice over localization (synced or “wild” audio) can be further enhanced by filming “talking heads” on a sound-stage and adding additional audio and visual elements to your localized content. This can help with the marketing and localization of products (goods, services, training courses) by offering customers and trainees friendly and familiar voices and faces speaking in a regional dialect people are comfortable with, ensuring that the intended messages are getting through, unadulterated.
